With the weather set to improve in the coming days, don't forget that the Big Butterfly Count is less than a month away.

The importance of butterflies cannot be overstated; they are excellent pollinators. Sadly, the deterioration of habitats and overuse of pesticides means they are becoming a rarer sight in gardens around the country.

Britain's butterflies need your help.

Recent surveys have shown a decline in many of the UK's insect species. By taking part in the Big Butterfly Count, you can help experts to build an up-to-date picture of the health of the species and ascertain what needs the most urgent help.
