There's a Butterfly count going on all round the country at the moment. The information is HERE.
You can take part anytime between now and the 9th August.
It would be lovely to see all these (2 day-flying moths are included) but very, very unlikely
I attempted to count how many were on the Buddleia, but there were so many it was impossible.
Almost all were Peacock butterflies plus a couple of Large White and one or two Red Admirals
But this was the most exciting spot because I didn't see any at all last year. It's a Comma.
Down the meadow I've spotted Ringlets, Meadow Brown and Gatekeeper. Last year there were Painted Lady flutterbies everywhere - haven't seen one at all this year
