61 Brickfield Meadow Sussex Wildlife Trust Reserve

A good example of an unimproved Wealden meadow. Tucked away by the village of Fairwarp in East Sussex, lies a small meadow rich in wildlife that has been managed in the traditional way without any agricultural improvement.

62 NWT Holme Dunes

The 281 hectare reserve is located on the Northwest Norfolk coast - 4 miles east of Hunstanton.  The site was brought by the Norfolk Wildlife Trust in 1965 and celebrates its 50 anniversery this year (2016).  The site is designated as part of the North Norfolk Coast SSSI on account of the intertidal sands and muds, saltmarshes, shingle banks and sand dunes.  There are extensive areas of brackish lagoons, freshwater pools, reedbeds and grazing marshes.

63 Nigel Jones' Romsey Garden, Hampshire

This garden is one hectare of mixed broad-leaved woodland (mainly oak, beech and birch) plus a small area of wild grassland, lawns and three ponds. My aim in 2019 is to record 1,000 species.

64 Pete Mella's garden, Sheffield, South Yorkshire

A suburban garden in Norton Lees, South Yorkshire (though technically in VC57, Derbyshire, due to old county boundaries).

Incluces species found in the house.

65 Seb Buckton's garden

Back and front gardens in Stroud, Gloucestershire. Moth trap regularly, bird feeders, pond and good views over Stroud.

List includes anything I can see and identify in, from or over my garden.

66 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.

67 Chailey Warren Sussex Wildlife Trust Reserve

A tiny area of wet heath and Molinia mire surrounded by birch woodland. The site lies to the east of the much larger Chailey Common. There is no public access to this site.

68 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.

69 Cogdean Elms, Corfe Mullen, Dorset

A small grassland reserve bordering an oak lined Roman road. 

70 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.
