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.

20th Nov

A thoroughly miserable, dull, cold and windy day which produced very little. The best of the mornings' seawatching were a Goldeneye, six Red-breasted Mergansers, a Black-throated Diver, a Purple Sandpiper and four Mediterranean Gulls. The land produced very little although coverage was a bit limited given the conditions. 

A Grey Seal and a Common Seal were feeding offshore.
