Big Butterfly Count 2020

Get ready for the Big Butterfly Count - it starts this week!

Between Friday 17 July and Sunday 9 August 2020 choose a place to spot butterflies and moths. Watch for 15 minutes. Then record which species you see.

The Big Butterfly Count is a nationwide citizen science survey aimed at helping to assess the health of our environment. It was launched in 2010 and has rapidly become the world's biggest survey of butterflies. Over 113,500 citizen scientists took part in 2019, submitting 116,009 counts of butterflies and day-flying moths from across the UK.

Go to the Big Butterfly Count website to download a free butterfly ID chart or free app to help you identify and record the butterflies you spot.
