I've opted for the 1km square that I am likely to spend the most time in during the year, other than when I am at work or at home.
For some reason I tend to spend more time in the decent wildlife habitat found locally than wandering around built up areas.
I'm glad people will be working a variety of habitats including excellent wildlife ones, it will make for an interesting comparison.

Don't knock urban walls though - how many species are possible on a decent stretch? Lichens, mosses, higher plants, collembola, arachnids, bag-worms, hymenoptera, hemiptera...
