Found this in W.London resting on a shop window.
One of the more beautiful moths but not the Tiger moth I remember as a youth.
The Jersey tiger moth (a more southerly species than the garden tiger) is spreading in London and the south of the UK. ...While the garden tiger moth is declining (down 92% over the last 40 years).
(Butterfly magazine issue 113 (summer 2013), p.11)
Tiger moths were the subject of Butterfly Conservation's 'Moth Night 2013'
