If you’ve got 15 minutes to spare over the next few weeks then why not get outside with the family and join the big butterfly count.
Run by Butterfly Conservation the big butterfly count is a nationwide survey aimed at helping us assess the health of our environment. It was launched in 2010 and has rapidly become the world’s biggest survey of butterflies. Over 60,000 people took part in 2017, submitting 62,500 counts of butterflies and day-flying moths from across the UK.
We’ll be doing some butterfly counts at Haig over the next few weeks so why not come along and give it a go – no need for any special equipment as we’ll have ID guides and recording sheets.
