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.

18th July

A windy start to the morning with a strong south-west breeze picking up by mid-morning.

As usual most of the interest was on the sea, with three Kittiwakes, three Mediterranean Gulls and a single Guillemot heading west down the channel. A small number of Common and Sandwich Terns were feeding off shore from the fishing boats.

Three Porpoise and a Grey Seal were also seen from the fishing boats.
