What is Patton's Tiger?
I have been immersed in natural history since I was 18 and started work at the (then) Wildfowl Trust at Arundel. I met, worked and lived with some brilliant naturalists and a lifetime's obsession was born.
Birding was followed by mothing and the height of 'achievement' was obtained when a moth was given the above vernacular name in recognition of the fact that I trapped the first British record.

A trip to heaven!
I don't have many species on my 'wanted list', but there are a few. This was one of them.
Not only is it a beautiful flower, but the smell is divine. I sat on the edge of Cheddar Gorge, with pinks at my feet and Ravens just below me. If heaven is like that, I'm happy to go!
