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.

4th Mar

A wet and windy day with not a great deal to be seen. Two Firecrests in the trapping area were about the best of the birds in the bushes. Over 4.5 hrs of seawatching produced 275 Brent Geese, a Mediterranean Gull, 13 Sandwich Terns and a Great Skua of note. Two Merlins also came in.

A Porpoise and a Grey Seal were seen offshore.
