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.

At least 14 Mediterranean Gulls were seen offshore but any other movement at sea was almost non-existent.
It was also very quiet on the land with a just few Swifts passing overhead of note.

Another decent catch of moths included three Sussex Emeralds, a Mottled Beauty (surprisingly scarce here - only the third Observatory record) and an Obscure Wainscot and the pyralid Dioryctria abietella
