The Big Butterfly Count is inviting people to report their butterfly sightings between 16-31 July so why not head out to your village green and settle yourself in a warm sunny spot for 15 minutes and note down any butterflies or day-flying moths.

The Count aims to gather information on the abundance of widespread species. Sightings are especially being sought from built up areas which normally produce comparatively few records. You can download a simple butterfly identification chart and submit your sightings online by visiting the Count website www.bigbutterflycount.org
