Hello, thank you for allowing me to join your group.

We have seen many Small Totoiseshell Butterflies this year and a few Peacocks but hardly any Red Admirals.

Not a lover of Moths but the colours fascinate me. There seems a lot of Cinnabar moths this yearin the garden and by the pond and today this flew into our Conservatory. I believe it is a Jersey Tiger Moth ?
Are they unusual to see on the I O W as this is the first I have ever seen.

Our favourite moth both day-flying & many will come to light if you use a light trap. Not sure why you're not keen on moths (our night-flying butterflies, they are all Lepidoptera) :? Jersey Tiger is a migrant but can over-winter given less harsh conditions. I suggest that you research moths to see how beautiful many of them are. Jean & Graham

Thank you for your reply, I just wondered if they are usual on the IOW.

Sorry no offence meant by my comment, have always been attracted to Butterflies but am now as interested in Moths.
