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.

28th Mar

Rain and flat calm throughout the morning made for a fairly uneventful days birding. The best of the migrants on the land were a Mistle Thrush, four Redwings, eight Firecrests and 20 Chaffinches. There was virtually no movement offshore and very few gulls at the Patch although they did include a first-winter Caspian Gull
