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.

Three Mediterranean Gulls were feeding at the Patch this morning but not a great deal else of interest was seen.

A Common Seal and a Grey Seal were feeding offshore.

A Figure of Eighty moth was trapped overnight which is (perhaps surprisingly) only the 15th Observatory record and the first since 2011.
