73 Childwall Woods and Fields

This is an urban local wildlife site. Three layers of ex landfill are now a mix of scrub and grassland with some woodland originating from landfill remediation. Also a large two part woodland, part semi-natural beech woods and part remnant ornamental gardens with some glades in both. Habitat work of creating scrapes has enhanced wet areas. The site has seen a decent amount of recording by local naturalists and an active friends group and the list is steadily increasing.

74 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.

75 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.

77 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.

78 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.

79 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.
