Jersey tiger moths seem to be everywhere this year. In a previous post I mentioned that this moth has expanded its range in recent years and is moving north rapidly. However, whenever I enter a sighting in iRecord, the national Biological Records Centre database, I get a message that states my sighting is outside the known distribution for this species. I guess the moth is moving more rapidly than the person who should be updating the known distribution. Anyway, here is proof. A Jersey Tiger on our new black wheelie  bin!

  1. We’re on our 6th Jersey Tiger in the garden this year. That’s the highest yet. Seeing more of these than the Garden Tigers I used to see as a child, years ago.
    We’ve also got a nice selection of dragonflies using the garden like a woodland ride. Mainly Common Darters and Migrant Hawkers clashing with Southern Hawkers.
