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.

17th Dec

A slow day with just two Caspian Gulls (second- and third-winters) and a second-winter Yellow-legged Gull being seen offshore of any note.

A Grey Seal was also feeding offshore. 

We also received details of an interesting (if unfortunate) ringing recovery today which involved a Song Thrush ringed at the Observatory this year on 6th October and sadly shot 49 days later at Marcilla, Navarra, SPAIN on 24th November. A distance of 978km SSW.
