It's estimated that 170 species feed from ragwort flowers, and 62 species of beetle, moth and fly eat its leaves - and half of these feed on nothing else.

Got some hot days on the way people. Can we make sure there is some water left out for birds, bees and other wildlife. Nothing too deep or at least something for bees etc to climb out on if they happen to fall in. @ChrisGPackham @SaveOurSparrows @SaveOurBees_ @BBCSpringwatch
My first Marbled White 😊 A lot of butterflies today on my walk from my house the Shadwell Wood today. Yellow Hammers, Red Kite, Black Caps, linnets, and so much more. essexwt.org.uk/nature-reserve…P@BBCSpringwatchh @ChrisGPackhamm @bbcwildlifemagg8
Did you know? The name comma butterfly derives from the small white 'C'-shaped marking resembling a comma on the underside of its wings. Spotted this one resting on an oak leaf @RSPBMinsmere @ChrisGPackham @BBCSpringwatch
Hoping to start taking my photography a bit more serious. Never used a photo editing programme before and I have been recommended Photoshop Elements. It's in the link below. Is it the right step to take as a beginner? amzn.to/2O6ZVgk @ChrisGPackham @bbcwildlifemag
I just counted 9 butterflies in the Big #ButterflyCount. Help @savebutterflies & join in bit.ly/12D3sF2
Seems to be the year of the The Cinabar Moth. Seeing good numbers of caterpillars. These eating machines can easily decimate a patch of ragwort. They have a dark side. If their food runs out before they are fully grown they can turn to cannibalism for vital nutrients!
You have to just love a buzzy Bee.
A couple of pics from one of my walks here on holiday in Suffolk. The maintenance of the road and lane verges here is fantastic. Wildflowers = wildlife. @BBCSpringwatch @bbcwildlifemag @ChrisGPackham @HedgehogSave @SaveOurBees_ @RSPBMinsmere @EnglishHeritage
What we might think of as weeds may be fantastic food for bees. For example dandelions and foxgloves are an excellent source of pollen and nectar. Leaving a corner of your garden to grow wild is an easy way to help our precious pollinators! 🐝🐝🌱wtru.st/2teeTUymWlFtt

Photo from the back of my camara. A pair of Little Owls living in an oak tree near to our Air B&B property. Feel very lucky. Managed to attract them in playing a Little Owl call on repeat on my phone. @BBCSpringwatch @BirdTherapy @Atlantic_Garden @bbcwildlifemag @ChrisGPackham
Off for a morning walk around Captins Wood. Camara at the ready. Wildlife everywhere in this area. Staying at a great Air B&B just on the edge of the wood. There is pair of little owls living here which I will post photos of later. @BBCSpringwatch suffolkwildlifetrust.org/captainswood

Woodbridge in Suffolk is full of wildflowers. In the fields and roadsides. It is a shame the rest of the country isn't managed like this. @BBCSpringwatch @ChrisGPackham @bbcwildlifemag
Our modern "supermarket" mentality ieffecting the way gardens are put together. We want "off the shelf" with everything in our lives now days. Plastic grass is bad and is directly affecting our wildlife. @BBCSpringwatch @bbcwildlifemag @BBCNatureUK telegraph.co.uk/news/earth/wil…
You can help hedgehogs by making a small gap in the bottom of your fence so they can roam freely in their territory. Around the size of a CD is perfect.

Digitalis x mertonensis, a foxglove that is worth having. Dense chunky crushed strawberry coloured flowers all summer long. A short lived perennial but self seeds when happy. An absolute bee magnet.

It's not just planting the right plants in your garden that can help bees and butterflies. You can have a little feeding station like in the link below. Or make yourself one! amzn.to/2xzr9AY
Liatris is coming into flower now. This plants attracts bees and butterflies like a magnet. Great perennial. Have a go. #saveourbees @BBCSpringwatch @bbcwildlifemag
First 100 Echium Red Feathers seedlings up and running. #Gardening #echium #saveourbees #haveago
Love the shift in public mood (largely driven by social media!) that's behind stories like this. Let's keep praising the good and encouraging those who are still a bit behind the curve to catch up: bbc.co.uk/news/uk-englan…

Echium Red Feathers If you can get hold of these next year do it! The bees go crazy. I've sown my seeds now so I'll will have nearly 300 available in the spring!! These will bloom and re-bloom from May till the frosts if spent flowers are deadheaded. UK hardy echium!! Have a go.
Q. How many 93-year-olds can silence a crowd of 50,000 people seventy years younger? A. Just the one.

I sowed this wildflower mix by Thompson & Morgan last year and it worked really well. Has a really good mix. Highly recommended. #wildflower #Gardenwatch #wildflowerhour amzn.to/2RKqG8B

Stop the council's cutting grass. Save them and us money. Oh and also save our wild, flowers, bees, butterflies. Longer grass will help all manner of animals and plants thrive. @BBCSpringwatch @bbcwildlifemag youtu.be/UgSd4bQa4N8
A short walk on the wild side. Look closely when you are out and about. There are some beautiful wild flowers at their peek. #saveourbees #wildlife #wildlifegardening #wildflowers

My Meconopsis seeds arrived yesterday. Going to mix with damp compost, place in a small poly bag and in the fridge for 4 - 6 weeks. Fingers crossed. First attempt at propagating this flower. #Meconopsis #Flowers #poppies #GardenersWorld #gardeningtips
They have arrived!! My Cardiocrinum Giganticum or Giant Himalayan Lily. Found an amazing grower which will remain a secret. 4-5 year old bulbs so about right to flower next year but hopefully the following so that the flower spike hits 9ft+
Philaeus Chrysops. Enfield!! Must have made the trip on a lorry from the Mediterranean. This is a male. #wildlifephotography #wildlife
Check out this jumping spider in the Olive. Look way from home @BBCSpringwatch m.facebook.com/story.php?stor…
It's been a joy and a privilege to turn a rather dull, overgrazed field into a traditionally farmed hay meadow. After just four years it's now home to billions of wild flowers and buzzing with #bees and #butterflies. @Love_plants @BSBIbotany @wildflower_hour #wildflowerhour

Lots of orchids at Box Hill yesterday evening - Man, Common-Spotted, Fragrant and Bee. @ukorchids

Five years ago, before @cumbriawildlife bought them, these fields at #EycottHill were green deserts, overgrazed and fertilised with minimal wildlife value. Today they are incredible - visibly and audibly buzzing with life. #Cumbria #lakedistrict #wildflowerhour

This summer let your grass wait a little longer before you get the lawnmower out. If you allow the clover to flower the bees will thank you 🐝💛iJs
