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.

11th July

A windy day made for difficult conditions but around 500 Swifts were feeding over the Point for much of the day. Seawatching produced a Manx Shearwater and an Arctic Skua of note whilst a juvenile Yellow-legged Gull was seen at the Patch.

Five Porpoises feeding offshore.

Yesterday, the plant Yellow-wort Blackstonia perfoliata was added to the Observatory flower list but conditions have made obtaining a decent image virtually impossible. Hopefully it will be less windy tomorrow and taking pictures will be a bit easier.
