The big butterfly count was launched in 2010 in an attempt to assess the state of the nation's wildlife, and has rapidly become the world's biggest survey of butterflies: past year over 60,000 people took part.

Eventually she moved back to the topic at hand, asking his favourite kind of butterfly and why they come in so many colours.

The UK's butterflies are basking in the best summer conditions for more than a decade, with hot sunny weather enabling widespread species to fly, feed and breed.

So Butterfly Conservation is asking people to spend the next three weeks keeping a tally of all the British butterflies they see out in the world. It's part of the world's largest butterfly count organised by the Butterfly Conservation.

It could record a bumper year for species such as common blue and red admirals (both pictured), but the hot summer could mean plants wither and caterpillars starve.

Sensing a chill, Ms Munchetty said: "I understand your reluctance to talk about that conversation but perhaps you'd be keen to talk about RRS Sir David Attenborough" - referring to a polar research ship Sir David recently launched on Merseyside.

Sir David said:"I have been privileged to have witnessed some truly breath-taking wildlife spectacles in far-flung locations but some of my most memorable experiences have happened when I've been simply sitting and watching the wildlife that lives where I do".

The majority of butterfly species have been in decline for the past 40 years.

'A few precious moments spent watching a stunning red admiral or peacock butterfly feeding amongst the flowers in my garden never fails to bring me great pleasure.

Sir McBoatface says spending time with nature offers "precious breathing space" from modern life, while the butterflies in particular help him take his mind off "the woes of Brexit".

SIR David Attenborough wants us all involved in the Big Butterfly Count.

Since 1990, butterfly numbers have dropped by 27 per cent in farmland and by 58 per cent in woods, the government study found.

TV nature expert and president of the organisation, Sir David said last year's results showed one of the worst on record for butterfly numbers in the UK.
