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.

12th May

A day of mixed weather with thick fog at times during the morning and heavy rain from late afternoon. There was very little on the land (again) but the sea was more productive with five Manx Shearwaters, a Great Skua, two Pomarine Skuas, an Arctic Skua and a steady movement of Sandwich and "Commic" Terns. A Hobby also arrived.

A Grey Seal and at least 15 Porpoises were feeding offshore.
