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.

14th Nov

Not a great deal to be seen today despite an obvious improvement in the weather. The best of the birds on the land were a few Goldcrests and two Firecrests and overhead passage included 12 Stock Doves, a late Swallow, 48 Chaffinches, eight Bramblings, 11 Redpolls, 130 Goldfinches and 18 Siskins.
It was very quiet offshore.

A Brown Hare and four Bank Voles were found.

The moth traps were surprisingly productive for migrants overnight with six Dark Swordgrass and a White-speck of note.
