Butterfly survey

Have you done your butterfly survey this week? Just spend 15 minutes looking for butterflies where you are, and report what you see to the Big Butterfly Count, being run by the Butterfly Conservation Trust.

I did my survey over the weekend here in Heslington.  I saw 4 Peacocks, 1 Small Tortoiseshell, 2 Green-veined Whites, 1 Small White and a Gatekeeper.

If you have a buddleia near you, that’s a great place to go looking for butterflies. The best time to look is when the sun is out.

Have fun! But hurry – the survey ends on 1 August.
