Do you have an interest in nature and a love of butterflies? Then why not take part in the Big Butterfly Count! All you have to do is record the type and number of butterflies you see in fifteen minutes. Our Nunckley Trail, and wild-flower areas are ideal locations to stake out.
Last year one person counted 43, another identified 12 different species.
Full details, including a butterfly chart and app to register your results can be found on the Big Butterfly Count Website. Interested in Butterfly conservation, then take a look at the Butterfly Conservation website.
The Big Butterfly Count 2018 runs from Friday 20th July to Sunday 12th August.
