Can I encourage everyone to take part in the Butterfly Conservation's "Big Butterfly Count" between 16th and 30th July this year?
Many butterfly species in the UK are in decline as a result of the damage we are doing to the environment so please spend 15 minutes in the next few weeks logging butterflies in your area and sending the results in.
And if you have a garden, shove in a buddleia or verbena bonariensis somewhere and make a butterfly happy.
Here's some pics of butterflies from our garden last year, this year there are hardly any.
I hope the massive decline this summer is simply due to sharing the garden with Bob the Builder and his team.
PS: Round of applause to Darsham for their new butterfly reserve!
