One of the most successful ‘citizen science’ surveys, the count actually started on the 19th July but carries on until August 11th so there’s plenty of time to take 15 minutes off and settle down somewhere nice to count the butterflies. I’ve seen the first of the late summer Holly Blues this morning. Always worth repeating counts at previous locations to compare from year to year but so much depends on the weather. But we need to get our area included!
