Butterflies anyone ?

From 16th July - 7th August we are taking part in the Big Butterfly Count.
Fifteen minutes peace and quiet, with children sat as still as mice trying to spot butterflies, its fantastic!
Wonder if I could convince them that the rest of August is the big bumblebee count...or moles...or dragonflies, anything that will keep them quiet for fifteen minutes has my vote!
Our garden is covered in Buddleias, or Butterfly Bushes and you can see why it gets that name, so far we have had Red Admirals, Peacocks, Speckled Wood, Large Whites and Gatekeepers.
Its a wonderful project to keep track of the Butterflies in Britain but also teaches my children about the various types of Butterfly.

I guarantee the peace and tranquility for fifteen minutes is heavenly xxx
