41 MWS garden, West Berks

Malcolm Storey's old garden in West Berkshire. We lived there from 1990 to 2013. Pond, wildlife meadow. Adjoins ancient woodland (derelict chestnut coppice) and pine plantation, and is close to the heathland of Bucklebury Common. Ad hoc recording and a few years of moth trapping in the spring.

42 Titchfield Haven NNR

Hampshire County Council - wetland reserve. Reedbed, fen, pools, man-made scrapes, wet meadows etc. Also including the seafront & canal path.

43 Stephen Howarth's former garden, North Warwickshire

A small suburban garden in a village in North Warwickshire. Adjacent to a small ancient woodland which is designated as a Local Nature Reserve. We lived here from October 2009 to February 2018 and been moth trapping throughout that time. Most other records are casual ones.

I've been keeping a list of animals for the garden for some time but only added plants and fungi later. Almost certainly missed some as I've only included ones which I can definitely remember having recorded.

44 Great Kimble garden

Martin Harvey's garden, the site of lots of random, ad hoc recording since 2005.

45 John Walker's garden, West Notts.

A small (c100m2) urban garden with a small (1m2) pond, not specifically managed for wildlife apart from being left rather unkempt. Situated on the edge of town with rough grassland and arable farmland to the north, ornamental trees planted by the local council on the adjacent plot.  Moth trapping since 2002 started my interest in PSL at home, over 40% of my records are now from this site.

46 Hollingbury Wildpark LNR

A chalk grassland area to the north of Brighton. It includes a golf course, meadows, a set-aside field, woodland and scrub.

47 Whitlingham C.P. (Norfolk)

Landscaped flooded gravel workings with small areas of parkland, agriculture and deciduous woodland. A local nature reserve run by the Whitlingham Charitable Trust & Broads Authority. The lakes are not actually broads, and nobody other than the Broads Authority call it 'Britain's Magical Waterland'. Whitlingham is known locally for its winter wildfowl, but also has a number of county first fungi records.

48 Gaywood Valley: Osier Marsh

Grass marshland, The Woodland Trust's Reffley Wood and domestic residences on eastern edge of King's Lynn, Norfolk.

49 Fishwick Local Nature Reserve, Preston

This LNR is a mixture of a reclaimed landfill site; an allotment; a relic apple orchard; a watercress farm; a typha swamp and a woodland.  There are 7 grassland areas that have been developed on the landfill sites.  There are 3 permanent ponds and a number of temporary ponds.  Throslock Wood at the eastern end of the Reserve is a Biological Heritage Site which is made up of mature, native non-plantation woodland.




50 Aylesbury Garden

Ryan Clark's garden in Aylesbury. Set in a urban location and not really managed especially for wildlife apart from; a small area of meadow flowers, a 1m square pond and some nesting space for bees and wasps.
