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.

Thursday 27th November
No lunchtime wanderings today - a meeting at work instead. However it was a pleasure to see a female Sparrowhawk perched on one of the fence posts next to Kiln Barn Road, Ditton as I cycled into work this morning.
