The Big Butterfly Count is a UK-wide survey aimed at helping us assess the health of our environment simply by counting the amount and type of butterflies (and some day-flying moths) we see.  This year’s Big Butterfly Count will run from the 16th July to the 8th August.

Visit the Big Butterfly Count website for more information including a handy butterfly ID chart for downloading.  You can also download the app and submit sightings during the count period.
