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.

21st Dec

Thick fog for most of the morning and limited coverage again. A first-winter Caspian Gull was just about discernible through the murk at the Patch in the morning and this was then seen again at the fishing boats in the afternoon and was joined by a third-winter bird.
A Firecrest was seen in the moat and a Fieldfare flew over.
