Don’t forget to do your Big Butterfly Count

Big Butterfly Count 2017
Sir David Attenborough launches Big Butterfly Count 2017

The Big Butterfly Count this year started on 14 July and runs to 6 August, so you’ve got a few days to join in.

Given some reasonable weather, you stand a good chance of seeing some butterflies. This graph from our ‘This year v last year’ page shows how much better butterflies are doing this year (the darker the blue, the more the sightings received):
