Edgeland Species List

All species listed here have been found on the 90 acre site I call my Edgeland. See the Edgeland page for more info. The list will be updated as and when I come across new species. Note that this list begins in Autumn from October 2016 and as such the Plant/Insect sections look a little barren! Given the proximity of my garden to the edgeland (25 metres as the Crow flies), any species found in the garden (particularly insects) will be included in this list.

As of October 2016
