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.

Very few migrants again but a superb male Red-backed Shrike which spent the day in the moat and was trapped in the late afternoon was the obvious highlight. The only other migrants of note were a Hobby, a Whinchat and a Spotted Flycatcher.
