Sarah, one of the farmingfriend’s forum members has emailed through some info about the Big Butterfly Count taking place from 24th July to 1st August 2010.
Butterflies are disappearing and are in serious decline, they are both beautiful and vital to the health of our environment.
So be part of the big butterfly count from the 24th July to the 1st of August this year and help Butterfly Conservation gather information to save them.
Just find a place where you might see butterflies, such as a garden or park, and count the different butterflies you see in just 15 minutes. You can make counts in several places during the week.
Submit your sightings at www.bigbutterflycount.org and you’ll receive 10 per cent off plants when you shop online at M&S.
See the website www.bigbutterflycount.org for details.
