- Had a trip to Nottcutts the garden centre at Maidstone this morning just for a browse, but did buy a couple of plants at an exorbitant price, however, when we had had enough of being fleeced, we took off onto the Ashford Road and before reaching the A20 there is a nursery, called Potted Gardens a friendly family run nursery but plants were not on my mind, but birds were,I happen to know that they are affiliated to Kent Wildlife Trust and have a great enclosed garden bordered by woodland mainly sweet chestnut and they have a hide strategically placed for observation by the public, they have feeders all over the place, species include most garden birds, Longtailed, Great, Coal and Blue-Tits, Goldfinch’s, Greenfinches, Yellowhammer, Great Spotted and Green Woodpeckers, Squirrels galore and the list goes on.
- I just happened to have my camera with me so stayed for ten minutes or so and took a couple of shots, can be seen below.
- If in the area it’s well worth a visit and is about a mile and a half from Nottcuttes just the other side of Bearstead.
