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.

4th Sep

A day with long spells of drizzle and light rain and a light south-easterly breeze which failed to produce anything of real note. Several hours of seawatching eventually produced a Balearic Sheareater, five Great Skuas and 16 Black Terns moving west and ten Arctic Skuas were still loitering with intent offshore. Barely a migrant to be seen on the land although an Osprey which has been roaming around the peninsula for the last few days eventually made it into observatory airspace.

Ten Porpoises and a Grey Seal were feeding offshore.
