Ongoing Excavation Works.

Please be aware that there are extensive ongoing excavation works around the Observatory until after Christmas. Please be very careful driving over the moat and note that parking may be difficult. We are, however, open for business and welcome anyone interested in winter birding around Dungeness.

15th February

The first-winter Caspian and Glaucous Gull were showing well as usual around the fishing boats. There was plenty of feeding activity offshore with at least 500 Great Crested Grebes again and good numbers of gulls and auks. A Woodcock and three Snipe were seen at the Long Pits.
