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.

2nd Aug

Very quiet in the continuing hot, dry and clear conditions. A Garden Warbler was the best on offer on the land, a Redshank flew over and a single Mediterranean Gull was feeding at the Patch.

A Common Seal was feeding offshore.

The highlight of the overnight moth trapping was a Tree-lichen Beauty (which unfortunately avoided the pot and photo opportunity) whilst four Hummingbird Hawk-moths were feeding in the Observatory garden.
