Best not go driving as trees are down blocking roads all over the district and my shed roof has gone walkabout.
How long have you lived in Dover?
It's we what call "a bit breezy"

more like a light breeze.
A bit hairy out in the woods, though, with these bits crashing down.

Where do our feathered friends go during strong winds? I put out the normal ration of food yesterday morning expecting to replenish it twice more during the day but as of 5 minutes ago none of it looks touched. They mostly reside in the trees on a nearby allotment but there is no sign of life there.
An awful lot of them end up in conifer hedges and trees, or into woods where the wind is minimal except the seagulls who go gliding.

Arte et Marte
I noticed that about the gulls who are heavy enough to deal with it. Tomorrow's market has been cancelled due to the winds which are forecast to continue.
The high winds seem to be causing problems on the roads outside of town, I haven't heard whether the ferries are having problems which would cause gridlock in places.

KENT - OPERATION STACK – SET AT PROBABLE
Due to continued bad weather in the Channel, Dover TAP is close to capacity and volume of traffic is expected to increase, Kent Police have sent advance notice that OP STACK may need to be deployed.
A friend travelling from Canterbury had been stationary "within sight of Lydden traffic lights for over an hour. Lorries block both lanes.
BTW that from the RHA is a bit late!
