Barry 23rd-24th August

The last two nights have seen large numbers of Jersey Tiger in the trap here; ten on Friday night and thirteen individuals counted from last night. Plus one seen fluttering in the garden by day yesterday. Last year I think we had no more than ten recorded and usually in ones and twos.

In contrast we've only had one Garden Tiger this year down from a handful last year. Similar foodplants but different tolerances perhaps...?

Some of Friday night's Tigers left, Saturday's right.
