61 Uig Hotel, Isle of Skye

This is where I work and live. Amongst other duties, I'm both the maintenence guy and the gardener/groundskeeper, so I tend to see plenty of bits and bobs - everywhere from the loftspaces to beneath the floorboards when indoors, to the lawns, trees, woodshed and streams when outside. I've been here since December 2016.

62 Nottingham city centre garden

My back garden where prodominatly I moth trap. Garden is about 7 x 3m. 

63 Cogdean Elms, Corfe Mullen, Dorset

A small grassland reserve bordering an oak lined Roman road. 

64 Graeme Lyons' garden in Hove (actually)

A small garden at the rear of the flat roughly about 6 x 6 m. It's west facing and is sunny to the south but has a huge Beech tree towering over it to the west. There is no lawn and I inherited it with almost 100% of the garden being full of non-native ferns and palms. I made my first record the day I moved in on 13th November 2017.

65 Paul Clack's garden in Wiltshire

Modest garden on a busy road on western side of Bradford-on-Avon in Wiltshire. Surrounded by walls and hedges, no water (yet). Decent mature shrubs in places, but surrounded by houses. Open fields a few hundred metres away. 

66 The Bannister's Garden, Barton upon Humber, North Lincolnshire

Large garden with large pond (dug 2005). Including an old orchard, garden once being part of a larger market garden.

Backs onto an old chalk quarry

67 Werneth Low Country Park

The country park extends for 80 hectares (200 acres) across the Northern and Western slopes of Werneth Low. Only 9.5 miles from the city centre of Manchester, the area is both a haven for wildlife and an area where visitors can find peace and relaxation. The park's location provides panoramic views across Manchester and beyond to Liverpool. The dark blue silhouette of the Welsh mountains can often be seen on clear days, as can the Pennine hills close by.

68 Etherow Country Park

Etherow Country Park is now owned and managed by Stockport Council and is an award winning Green Flag Park. It was established in 1968 as one of Britain’s first Country Parks and is a popular retreat from urban living. Over a quarter of a million people now visit the Park each year to enjoy the natural beauty of ancient woodland walks along the Etherow river valley, in the foothills of the Peak District National Park. The Park was once part of the estate of George Andrew who built Compstall Mill in the 1820s.
