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.

9th February

A very wet and much calmer morning but a bit disappointing for seabirds with hardly anything moving offshore other than 357 Kittiwakes and five Mediterranean Gulls in 2.25 hours. The first-winter Caspian Gull and Glaucous Gull were showing well at times.
A Grey Seal was seen and a few more clusters of Goose Barnacles were found on the beach.
