Our gardens are a potential haven for a diversity of wildlife species including hedgehogs, butterflies, bees, and birds. When combined together they can provide habitat for a staggering diversity of species if they are managed in a wildlife friendly manner. One dedicated garden owner recorded almost 2700 species in her suburban Leicester garden over a 30 year period. Beyond the more conspicuous common garden visitors such as birds and butterflies, many of us don’t know where to start in terms of recording the more elusive inhabitants such as bats, hedgehogs, moths and other invertebrates. As the countryside becomes less and less wildlife friendly, there is a growing interest in the scientific and conservation communities to understand which species are using urban and suburban gardens. We can all contribute to this understanding by recording the wildlife in our own backyards. You may be surprised at what you find!
