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.
Most of the days interest was offshore. Nearly five hours of watching (mostly from first light) produced 18 Shelduck, two Velvet Scoters, an Eider, six Red-breasted Mergansers, 11 Great Skuas, three Sandwich Terns and seven Mediterranean Gulls while passerines coming in included two Skylarks, 3220 Starlings and 193 Chaffinches. A Bullfinch was seen in the trapping area and a Grey Wagtail also flew over.
