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.

19th August

A modest day of land birding, led by three Whinchats, a Spotted Flycatcher, three Wheatears and 25 Yellow Wagtails. Come the afternoon, Black Terns started pushing west offshore, with 159 all in, while a Balearic Shearwater, seven Little Terns and a Grey Plover headed the same way and at least four Arctic Skuas loitered.

A Grey Seal and a minimum of six Harbour Porpoises were noted at sea.

Three Hummingbird Hawkmoths were seen along the front of the power station.
