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 July

A cooler and very windy day restricted observations on the land but 170 Swifts and two Sand Martins passed through.
Despite the rough conditions the sea was generally quiet although a Balearic Shearwater flew east and 60 Mediterranean Gulls were seen. 

One Porpoise was feeding offshore.
