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.

Only birding sighting of note was an unfortunate female Blackbird that flew into one of my French doors. Luckily it was only stunned and after being kept warm in my hands it took flight apparently no the worse for the experience.
