30 Days Wild Pan-species Challenge: Day 20

This period for me is filled with university open days, and today fitted the trend. I went to the Oxford University day today, where the first bird seen in the city was a Red Kite.

Whilst sat in a talk I briefly noticed a large moth in the quad with lots of red on it, I toyed with the idea of it being a Scarlet or Jersey Tiger. Or had I just overestimated the size of a Cinnabar?

Later, when by the Bodleian I saw a definite example of a Scarlet Tiger. Surely one of the best moths in Britain?

Sadly it was too quick for a picture.
