Hi, my name is Simon. My local patch is Mote Park, one of Kent’s largest parks and right on the edge of Maidstone, the county town of Kent. It is a former country estate, and records of the Park date back since before the 14th century. The park has a variety of habitats and this blog will note all the wildlife that I encounter in them.
A quick walk around the park this morning produced very little. Most notable species were 4 Med Gull on the Lake, 1 Great Spotted Woodpecker, 3 Goldcrest and 2 Jay. Gatekeeper, Meadow Brown, and Large White butterflies were also noted.
