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 July

The first juvenile Yellow-legged Gull and Mediterranean Gull arrived at the Patch but it was otherwise a quiet day.

A Grey Seal and a Porpoise were feeding offshore.

Lots of butterflies can be seen in the area with the first of a new brood of Brown Argus appearing and a few Essex Skippers among the hoards of Small Skippers. Large numbers of Large Whites were also seen.
