I saw an unusual moth yesterday and have been trying to identify it this morning. The closest I can get to it, is a Tiger Moth – possibly a Garden Tiger Moth, as others that look most like it are not native to the UK and would be well outside their range.
I doubt I’ve spotted a rarity, but will keep my eyes open and see if I can spot it again, and perhaps get a photograph.

At first, I read the heading as an Odd “Month”, not Moth. So, I was expecting a completely different blog post. 🙂
Anyway, if it was a tiger moth that you saw, then it certainly is a pretty looking one. Even though your location would be out of it’s general range, in this day and age, it’s easy for anything to hitch a ride and wind where it’s not supposed to be.
Well it has been an odd month too – and I’ll probably get around to a post about it soon.
I’ve never seen one here before, which is probably why it stood out, but haven’t seen it since, so it might just be a one off. We’ll see.
