Summers Causing Butterflies to Bounce Back

Summers Causing Butterflies to Bounce Back

As per the revelations of a new report, meadow browns-like butterflies in the UK are being helped by warm summers to bounce back to gardens.

It has been found that butterflies have suffered the worst time in 2012. Small tortoiseshells along with them, therefore, are being seen by the Azores high as returning to the countryside.

In order to measure the way of returning back of insects in the sunshine, people are being requested to sign up for the Big Butterfly Count. The same is the biggest butterfly survey of the world, which was launched by Joanna Lumley along with Sir David Attenborough this Thursday for the charity Butterfly Conservation.

The report unveiled that thousands of nature lovers had spent some 15 minutes in some garden or the countryside last year. They reported that more than 220,000 butterflies were viewed by them. The Count was recorded on the website of the Big Butterfly Count.

The same was an indication that there was a huge reduction in 15 of 21 common species.

In the opinion of Butterfly Conservation's Richard Fox, "Conservation bodies and landowners can bust a gut to get habitat managed in the right way for butterflies but if it rains all through the summer there's nothing we can do".
