Garden Tiger...........


Hi all following on from Martyns find of a dead Garden Tiger at his work place in Hebden(may have been an import or maybe not)Brian leesey found two larvae today in Todmorden.This is great news as they have not been seen and presumed lost for ever as a breeding species in our area many years ago.
1 Feathered Ranunculus last night and a totall of 9 Balck Rustics so far this season.I have to agree with Paul and Martyn a real beaut (not rare justa beautiful moth)

Hi Andy
They are very difficult to rear through so I have never bothered. The adults fly late and are rarely trapped before midnight. So if you are looking for the adults next year its a late night or all night job
