The Big Butterfly Count 2022

Help us take nature’s pulse by joining the Big Butterfly Count.

The Big Butterfly Count is a UK-wide survey aimed at helping us assess the health of our environment simply by counting the amount and type of butterflies (and some day-flying moths) we see.

The count will begin on Friday 15th July 2022 and run until Sunday 7th August.
