Scarlet Tiger

The MV was a bit livelier this morning, with higher numbers (and species composition) of moths. There was one clear highlight - a Scarlet Tiger - a garden first and county rarity to boot. This is the 554th species of moth recorded here, of which 397 are 'macros'. This exposes a few things - the fine cross section of larger moths that the garden has played host to; the length of recording (almost 30 years); and the low number of 'micros' on the list...


  1. That's the way to start a day, Steve! Brilliant!

    1. Good to hear from you Lucy! I miss your blogging - no rush, but when you're ready... :-)
