Do the Big Butterfly Count during the school holidays
The Big Butterfly Count is a UK-wide survey aimed at helping to assess the health of our environment simply by counting the amount and type of butterflies (and some day-flying moths) we see.
All you have to do between Friday 17 July and Sunday 9 August, is to download an identification chart from the Big Butterfly Count website.
- Choose a place to spot butterflies and moths.
- Watch for 15 minutes.
- Record which species you see on the Big Butterfly Count website
And there is also a butterfly photography competition at bit.ly/2OyTv7b (Guardian, 17th July)
