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.

13th Apr

Very quiet on both land and sea. A Greenshank flew over the Observatory and was presumably the same bird seen on the RSPB Reserve later in the day. Two Yellow Wagtails and a Tree Pipit also flew over. A Great Skua flew east and the first-winter Iceland Gull and three Mediterranean Gulls were feeding at the Patch.

Four Porpoises were seen.
