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.

7th Aug

More of the same weather although by late afternoon there were signs of things breaking down with some thunderstorms arriving. Birds were also much the same with just a thin scatter of commoner migrants and the highlight of our second Nightingale of the month.

Five Porpoises and a Grey Seal were feeding offshore.

The moth traps were also fairly quiet but did produce three Cydia amplana of note.
