A report of wildlife sightings from the western edge of Maidstone, Kent. I note anything of interest in the vicinity of my home in Barming and from walks into work at the East Malling Research Station along the edge of Barming Woods and down to Ditton. Occasionally, when time allows, I get out to Ditton Quarry, a rich habitat hemmed in by residential and industrial developments on one side, but with open countryside on the other.

Lovely crisp morning but nothing out of the ordinary in the way of birds. Nine jays made a hell of a racket by the Quarry. I've included a photo of Heron that landed on the tree of my back garden last week - 4 were seen that day, but nothing since!
