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.

29th Nov

A very cold morning produced a few birds on the land with two Fieldfares, seven Redwings, five Bramblings and the first Snow Bunting of the autumn/winter passing overhead. The Bullfinch was seen in the trapping area again.
There was very little movement offshore but a Great Skua and a Mediterranean Gull were lingering. Three Merlins were also seen hunting around the beach.
