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.

3rd Apr

The day was dominated by almost constant very thick fog which severely limited observation. A single Firecrest was seen near the Britannia and two Great Spotted Woodpeckers, a Blackcap, six Chiffchaffs and a Wheatear were also seen. Seawatching was impossible but a check of the Patch produced a Common Tern and one of the Iceland Gulls and a second-winter Yellow-legged Gull were seen at the fishing boats.

Moths at the Observatory have been fairly limited but elsewhere a couple of White-marked have been trapped, the second and third Dungeness area records.
