Barnwood Park and Arboretum


Butterflies

The habitat in the Park and Arboretum attracts a wide and interesting range of butterflies. Until the restrictions imposed by Covid, the Friends took part each year in the national Big Butterfly Count organised for three weeks in July and August by Butterfly Conservation. Many adults and children took part spending just 15 minutes counting the butterflies they saw in the Park and Arboretum. They were aided by charts to help them identify the butterflies they saw. The results were then collated and submitted to the annual survey. 

In addition, craft activities on the theme of butterflies and caterpillars were organised to interest the children who took part.

We hope to be able to do this again in 2022.

All these photos were taken in the Park and Arboretum.
