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.

18th Jan

Another calm, bright and cold day with most of the coverage concentrated at the Patch where there were huge numbers of gulls. However, nothing new could be found but the two first-winter Iceland Gulls were still feeding there along with the drake Eider and an adult Mediterranean Gull.
