Blog: Get Started With Wildlife Recording In Your Garden by Abigail Lowe

Gardens are vital habitats for wildlife, providing shelter and refuge. Not many people are aware that the total area of gardens in the UK is greater than the total area of all our National Nature Reserves put together – meaning if we all look after our little patch with care, we can contribute to supporting biodiversity.

Now is a great time to get into wildlife recording, with all the time we are spending at home and the change in the weather!
