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.

22nd Oct

With a fresh and cold NW wind blowing migration was at a very low ebb with just a handful of finches passing through and very little else of interest. 
The sea was also quiet with the exception of around 1500 Mediterranean Gulls still feeding offshore and with a couple of Arctic Skuas in attendance.

Despite the cold night the moth traps were surprisingly productive again with two Vestals and a Delicate of some note.
