Butterfly Conservation is recruiting gardeners for its Garden Butterfly Survey for 2016
Its dedicated website allows you to record the butterflies that visit your garden over the course of a year. You can create a free account, submit your sightings, and help them learn more about how butterfly species are faring.
The aim of the project is to establish the importance of gardens as a habitat for butterflies and determine how people can make the most of their gardens to help boost butterfly populations. Sightings will also be passed on to local and national recording schemes that help inform conservation research.
All you need to do is make a note of the butterflies seen throughout the year and log your sightings through the website. Participants are asked to check their gardens at least once a month, but you can submit records as often as you wish.
