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.

15th Nov

A pretty quiet day with just six Bullfinches in the trapping area, 12 Siskins overhead and the two regular Dartford Warblers of note on the land.
Seawatching produced just a Great Skua and four Mediterranean Gulls of interest.

A Scarce Umber was caught overnight in the moth trap and is only the third Observatory record along with a Udea ferrugalis and a ridiculously late Dark Arches.
A Small Copper was also seen.
