|Red Admiral on Buddleia|
This year it will be even more interesting and more important to make a count of butterflies as they will have been affected by the cold, wet and unseasonal weather this year.
My buddliea is just starting to flower, so a big attraction for butterflies and great timing for the count.
To take part visit www.bigbutterflycount.org - download the id chart, pick 15 minutes - hopefully on a sunny day and then submit your count online. You can pick different sites and different dates during the survey time.
