Have you taken part in the Big Butterfly Count for Have you taken part in the Big Butterfly Count for 2022? 

We love butterflies at Furzey Gardens and our staff, volunteers and people we support take part in a regular butterfly walk to count the number of butterflies seen. Last year we recorded 18 different species of butterfly with meadow browns being the most common, along with Large White, Small White and Peacock butterflies also being some of the most frequently sighted. 

This week visitors to the cottage garden may have been lucky enough to see this beautiful silver-washed fritillary taking full advantage of the buddleia.
