Tigers in the garden

In the moth trap this morning was my first Garden Tiger along with a couple of Ruby Tiger.
Although the Garden Tiger was slightly worn it was still a lovely moth.
Also in the trap was a Scalloped Oak. Far from rare but still a handsome moth.

Of the 3 evenings the moth trap has been out this month this was the quietest night. There was still getting on for 100 moths but all the others were regulars accept for 2 that escaped before I could do a proper id on them. The biggest moth was a Privet Hawk that has been a regular in the trap this summer.
