David Attenborough backs butterfly and moth count
NATURE lovers are being asked to check their gardens for tiger moths in a bid to help conservationists studying the effects of climate change on moth distribution.
Butterfly conservation journal Atropos is asking people in Gloucestershire to send in records of their sightings during the Moth Night period.
The annual celebration of moths runs from today until Saturday and will include a series of day-time searches and night-time recordings across the UK.
It precedes the Big Butterfly Count on Saturday when residents are asked to spend 15 minutes looking for butterflies in their garden and logging their findings online.
