Hebridean Wildlife on the Map
Gardens are wonderful places for wildlife and provide food and refuge for an enormous range of animals from bees and butterflies to frogs, dragonflies and small mammals. Some garden inhabitants maybe less welcome, but there should always be room for a few garden snails and slugs. In a wildife friendly garden the ladybirds and hoverfly larvae will eat the aphids, the frogs and large ground beetles will help with keeping the slugs under control, but best of all the pollinating insects will ensure that you have a good crop of beans,tomatoes and fruit.
We would like to know about the wildlife in your garden - the good, bad and the ugly. The pests, the pollinators, the weeds and the wild flowers, they are all part of the garden wildlife community.
This is a great survey for new wildlife recorders and young nature detectives. To help you we will be posting information about which species you might see in your garden each month.
If you would like to try something a little more challenging survey you might like to try the My Patch surveyMy Patch
