This year’s national Garden BioBlitz was held over the weekend of the 4-5 June. Supported by Springwatch and the BBC’s Do Something Great campaign, scores of enthusiastic naturalists braved unpredictable weather to see what else called their gardens home. Four week on, and we’re ready to announce the results.
A grand total of 1,292 species were spotted, plus a couple of hundred at genus or family level. In total 93 people submitted a whopping 6,007 records, of which 5,389 were identified to species.
