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.

5th Sep

Very little on the land with just a Garden Warbler and four Whinchats of note and a few Meadow Pipits and a Grey Wagtail flew over.
The sea was also much the same as it has been with lingering Arctic Skuas, a Great Skua and a Black Tern and a Balearic Shearwater flew east.

Six Porpoises and a Grey Seal were seen offshore.

Fairly small numbers of moths were trapped overnight but they did include a Convolvulus Hawkmoth and a Scarce Bordered Straw. A Hummingbird Hawkmoth was seen in the moat and two Clouded Yellows were also seen.
