Butterfly Count at Longthorns Farm

Why count butterflies? Butter Fly Conservation explains:

Butterflies react very quickly to change in their environment which makes them excellent biodiversity indicators. Butterfly declines are an early warning for other wildlife losses.

That’s why counting butterflies can be described as taking the pulse of nature.

The count will also assist us in identifying trends in species that will help us plan how to protect butterflies from extinction, as well as understand the effect of climate change on wildlife.

We at Longthorns have been doing this count for a number of years. The environment is precious and fragile, we are already trying to help as much as we can. We have eco loos and our water is from rain water collection. 

Our aim is to provide quality camping, whilst respecting nature, farm sustainability, recycle and reuse wherever possible and for as many people to enjoy Longthorns Farm as much as we do.

Counting Butterflies is fun.

If you would like to take part in the Big Butterfly Count while staying at Longthorns Farm, only takes 15 minutes and the kids will love it. Click on the Butter Fly Logo to go to the Butterfly Count Page and record your sighting. 

We counted butterflies on the farm on the 6th August. These are what we saw in our 15 minute count. I know, only 9 but that is so important to know.
