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.

Monday 30th April 2012
After going AWOL over the weekend I was pleased to see the male Ring Ouzel hoping around a paddock in East Malling (but still distant!). Stock Dove, Little Owl, Swallow, Green Woodpecker and Red-legged Patridge and Pied Wags were also on show.
