I take part in the Big Butterfly Count every year. It’s great fun to do and I would encourage anyone to do it!
Though I’ve now been in the Market Bosworth area for a year now, this is the first opportunity do the Big Count here.
As always, I enjoyed my count. The chosen place was my local patch, it is so full of life! In the 15 minutes of doing the survey, not only did I see 9 different species of butterfly, but I also saw Dragonflies, Damselflies, Bees, Snails, Birds and, Black and Yellow Longhorn beetle. I even had a frog jump over my foot!
