We live in Loughborough (in the East Midlands) and have a medium-sized suburban garden which, since we moved here in 2000, we have planned, planted and maintained in order to attract as much wildlife as possible.
We have seen and identified 6 species of mammals and 60 birds (either in or flying over the garden) as well as amphibia and other wildlife in the pond and many insects.
(Hover over pictures for identification, click on them to enlarge.)
