The big butterfly count is here

How’s your arithmetic?

The big butterfly count is a nationwide survey aimed at helping assess the health of the environment. It was launched in 2010 and has rapidly become the world’s biggest survey of butterflies. Over 100,000 people took part in 2018, submitting 97,133 counts of butterflies and day-flying moths from across the UK (see all the 2018 results).

This year’s count runs from Friday July 19 to Sunday August 11. And Burwash can play its part. Let’s start the countdown!
