This weekend marks the launch of this year’s Big Butterfly Count.
It is really easy to get involved just spend 15 minutes in a sunny spot and note down how many of each species you see. Then submit your results with the date and location at www.bigbutterflycount.org.
You can download an identification chart to help you and if you have a smartphone there is even a free butterflycount app!
Good luck! And post of comment here about what you saw.
