  1. A Scarlet Tiger moth visited a garden in Llanfihangel-ar-Arth last week, a friend emailed me a photo.

  3. Were you aware that you had Scarlet Tigers breeding in your polytunnel, Sally? I wonder what they were feeding on.

  4. I have seen up to 4 in there each year and assume they are breeding in there but not seen the caterpillars yet - I have a lot of comfrey (and nettles) just outside and abundance of hemp agrimony not too far from the site so plnety of food sources for them. The two I saw the other day were in the strawberry bed.
