Big Butterfly Count and Tayside Recorders' Day Call to Action - Perthshire Chamber of Commerce

Big Butterfly Count and Tayside Recorders' Day Call to Action

The Big UK Butterfly Count is now on (until 7th August) so please take part – in your local greenspace, graveyard, during your country walk or in your garden: Big Butterfly Count (butterfly-conservation.org). Please let everyone know how easy it is to take part! There are some handy ID posters to download or share via Butterfly Conservation’s Facebook page - (3) Butterfly Conservation | Facebook (an example is shown below).

Whilst writing, the Tayside Biodiversity Partnership will soon be launching its own iNaturalist App so that we can all take part in simple wildlife surveys wherever we are. I will let you know when it is ready to go online. As ever there are a few glitches we are currently ironing out.

And more news – the Tayside Wildlife Recorders’ Day will take place in Perth Museum this year – Saturday 24th September. Please make a note of the date (a booking form will be sent round soon) and if you would like to give a 5-10 minute update on anything you have been recording or studying, please let me know within the next couple of weeks. There will be a community quickfire session especially for this. Everyone from across Tayside is very welcome to this event and “previous knowledge” is not expected, just a bit of enthusiasm!

All the best

Catherine

PS - you can take part in the Big Butterfly Count as often as you wish across as many locations as you wish
