Whose taking part in the Big Butterfly Count this year? All you need to do is choose a place to sit for 15 minutes and note down which butterflies you see - you can print the butterfly chart off or download an app on your phone :)

I'll link the website below too for anyone whose interested in more information...

Thank You for posting this. I had no idea this had been organised.

When I was a child ( aka 40 years ago !) it would have been impossible to count the number of butterflies on a buddliah plant - there were so many . Nowadays, I hardly see any.

I will definitely take part.

It started a few years ago :)
I know, it's sad that there aren't as many about.. although I have seen quite a few these past few days which is promising!
I'm off to the woods to do my sighting! Great excuse for a picnic in the woods :)
