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 dusting of snow brought some winter thrushes into the glasshouse area at East Malling Research to feed on discarded apples. Hopefully the Waxwings will be back if the weather stays cold and the snow cover increases.
