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.

20th July

Another quiet day with just a Whimbrel, two Mediterranean Gulls and a juvenile Yellow-legged Gull offshore and 85 Sand Martins passing through.

At least six Porpoises were feeding offshore and a Stoat was seen at the Long Pits.

With windier conditions overnight the moth catch was much reduced compared to the last couple of nights but still produced a True Lovers Knot and a Slender Brindle, the latter being only the fifth record for the Observatory.
