Rare Jersey Tiger Moth Reaches High Halstow

The RSPB has reported that the Jersey Tiger moth has headed east from London and been sighted at RSPB’s Northward Hill nature reserve in High Halstow.

David James, field teacher at RSPB Northward Hill, said: “I’ve checked all our records and those from other people who have trapped here – to no avail. So with this first sighting at Northward Hill nature reserve it looks like the Jersey Tiger might be spreading further East.  We’ll need to keep monitoring the situation and see if we get further sightings before we can be sure.”
