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.

Very quiet. The Great Skua and Little Gull were feeding offshore again and one of the regular first-winter Caspian Gulls was at the Fish Hut with an additional second-winter bird at the Patch. A Mediterranean Gull was also feeding at the Patch.

A Grey Seal was seen offshore.

The Ring-necked Duck and Stejneger's Stonechat were both on their regular stations.
