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.

The first Fieldfares on the East Malling Research Station were sen this afternoon, with 20+ birds on the wires in the orchards. A couple of Common Buzzards also drifted NW at lunchtime.
