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.

21st July

Despite the seawatching riches to be had further west it was pretty hard going here with just three Manx Shearwaters, an Arctic Skua, three Mediterranean Gulls and good numbers of Gannets and Sandwich Terns passing through.
Quiet on the land except for a large gathering of Sand Martins at the Point in the afternoon.

Gathering at the Point before departing to the south.
Three Porpoises were feeding offshore.

The moth traps produced a Maiden's Blush, a Scarce Bordered Straw and three Langmaid's Yellow Underwings of note.
