Butterfly Count

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.

The count runs from July 20th to August 12th 2018.

Just spend 15 minutes in a sunny spot. Download, print off and use the chart to note how many of each species you see.
