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.

Tuesday 25th November
Off patch today in the hope of seeing the Firecrest in Lunsford lane, Leybourne. Again no luck, although a few Goldcrests kept me entertained and a female Goldeneye showed well on the small lake to the east of Alders lake.
