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.
Little to report on the birding front. A second-winter Mediterranean Gull and two juvenile Yellow-legged Gulls were feeding at the Patch and 115 Swifts and a Yellow Wagtail flew over. The Peregrine Falcon family continue to show well around the power station.

Looking for dragonflies proved very productive today with the finding of a male Broad-bodied ChaserLibellula depressa near the New Lighthouse (third Observatory record) and a male Red-veined Darter Sympetrum fonscolombii at the SE corner of the trapping area. One Porpoise was seen offshore.
