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.

3rd June

Not much to report on the bird front this morning. A Reed Warbler was singing in the moat and a Garden Warbler was singing in the trapping area. A Yellow Wagtail flew over.

At least 28 Porpoises ere feeding offshore.

The highlight of the day was a Lesser Emperor caught in the Heligoland Trap at the Observatory although a male Broad-bodied Chaser at the Long Pits was remarkably only the 3rd Observatory record.
