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.

Saturday 22nd November
Quick walk out to St Maragrets churchyard, Barming just to check the Hawfinches of 2 years past weren't around! No sign. However lots of Redwings were darting in out of the yew trees, joined by Greenfinches and Chaffinches.
