Jersey Tiger in Aylesbury

I had my first ever Jersey Tiger moth in my Aylesbury garden trap last night - maybe they are moving north from south Bucks, or perhaps a migrant? I also had a late Maple Prominent, maybe second brood, also my first Centre-barred Sallow - autumn is virtually upon us!  Dave Maunder

  1. Seems the Jersey Tiger decided to head North rather than further West. Despite being in Henley area for some time now still never seen one only a little way West. Great catch Dave.

  2. It's the aberrant f. lutescens with the yellow underwings, as well.
