Jersey Tiger. Photo: Bob Watton

Bob sent us this photo of a Jersey Tiger moth, which his little five year old grandson Reuben found in Hamworthy on 17/08/21 while out for a walk with his grandma.

As I told Bob this used to be a rarity but no longer, as we are being sent many sightings of this species nowadays.  It is so good to know young eyes are spotting our butterflies and moths  and hopefully it will encourage a life-long interest in them. Well done Reuben!
