The Big Butterfly Count

Attention, all butterfly fans — ‘Butterfly Conservation’ is trying to get as many people as possible to participate in the Big Butterfly Count, which is being run between 17th July and 9th August.  All that’s required is that participants take 15 minutes or so (I’d actually suggest a tiny bit longer) in a sunny spot and count as many butterflies (and, if you’re inclined, moths) of however many species that they see … then simply submit those sightings to www.bigbutterflycount.org.
Hopefully you will join the tens of thousands of folks expected to take part and assist this country-wide initiative designed to assess the current status of our butterfly population. If you need to know more, contact me here.
