Prince Charles visited a wildlife reserve yesterday looking for one of the rarest butterflies in the country.
The Large Blue became extinct in this country in the 1950s but it has been introduced to the Daneway Banks reserve, at Sapperton in Gloucestershire - where the Prince of Wales is patron.
Our Gloucestershire correspondent thought he'd try his luck at finding it...
If it's any consolation, Prince Charles never got to see one either.
But he did get to unveil a special plaque to commemorate his visit to the reserve, though like the butterfly we'd all been looking for, it took flight.
The caterpillar of a white-letter hairstreak butterfly has been discovered for the first time at Clouts Wood in Wiltshire, despite being under threat.
A small green larva was spotted by a visitor who was delighted at his discovery of this rare species who have suffered heavy declines, as a result of Dutch Elm Disease.
The butterfly gets its name from the W-shape etched in white on the underside of its hindwing.
Sir David Attenborough is calling on nature lovers in Devon to take part in the world's largest butterfly count.
Experts will be leading the counts at events across the country as part of efforts to reverse the decline of butterflies.
The famous naturalist is also asking people to plant nectar sources in their garden for pollinating insects.
One of the UK’s rarest butterflies has recorded its best year for a decade and the South West is one of only three areas in the UK it can be found.
The High Brown Fritillary was last year classed as critically endangered by Butterfly Conservation - but has seen a 180% increase thanks to a stronghold on Dartmoor, where it thrives on open woodland.
It's thanks to 2014’s warm spring weather and work to restore its habitat according to a study led by the Dorset based charity Butterfly Conservation and other organisations.
The High Brown Fritillary is one of only two critically endangered butterflies in the UK.
