Tiger in my trap

For the 2nd time in a fortnight I've been lucky to have the rare Jersey Tiger Moth in the trap. According to Colin Pratt, the Sussex Moth Recorder,  my first Jersey Tiger was the first ever record for Seaford, so I guess, this one is the 2nd record for Seaford!!

Later in the day I had another attempt at my annual Wall Brown count on my usual circuit from home. This is a circuit of a little over 4 miles and today was my highest ever count of 105. For a species that has declined in numbers so dramatically in Britain over the last 30 years' it is very rewarding to see numbers like this so locally. Another female posed very briefly for me.
