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.
After a quiet day the best bird was found in the late afternoon in the form of a Stone-curlew in the Desert where a Short-eared Owl was also seen. A Tree Pipit flew over and a Whinchat was also noted. In addition, a Black-throated Diver, three Arctic Skuas, five Little Terns and six Mediterranean Gulls flew east and the Iceland Gull was still at the Patch.
