Have we any butterflies in Pooterland?
Now is the moment to sit out in your garden or the local parks on a nice sunny day around some flowering plants and for 15 minutes count whatever butterflies and moths flutter by. We should find whites, and if lucky, commas, red admirals and peacocks. On some of the council’s flowering meadows there may be meadow browns. The count is being organised by Butterfly Conservation and you can log your findings on their website from now until the end of August: http://www.bigbutterflycount.org/
