Species numbers in the moth trap are well down on last year but this week managed another first for the garden in the shape of 2 Jersey Tigers, a species that's been spreading for sometime and has finally reached here. Also of interest was a very nice example of a Tree-Lichen Beauty, a species that I first recorded in 2013 and have now had 45 records since then. It's only the 2nd year that I've recorded Pyrausta despicata.
