The big butterfly count
Changes in the abundance of butterflies throughout the UK have been monitored since 1976 in one form or another. Anyone can take part in the 2018 running of this citizen science project. All you need to do is head outdoors between Friday 20th July and Sunday 12th August, find a sunny spot and then spend 15 minutes recording the butterflies you see. For more information, go to: www.bigbutterflycount.org or one of the other participating organisations, which include the National Trust, RSPB and WWT.
