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.

23rd July

Two Balearic Shearwaters, 12 Whimbrel, two Sanderlings and 46 Common Terns passed west this afternoon whilst two Arctic Skuas flew east on an otherwise quiet day. 

Five Porpoise and a Grey Seal were seen offshore.

A Bordered Straw was the best of a small overnight catch of moths and a Hummingbird Hawkmoth was feeding around the Observatory garden during the day.
