Tiger beetle mating season is here!

Tiger beetles mating on Erringden Moor (Sunday June 9th 2019)

After a very fruitful walk through Parrock Clough and Broadhead Clough where we saw and heard many birds, we followed the path up to Erringden Moor and were treated to a host of beautifully iridescent Tiger beetles, some alone, many flying around and also a pair mating. With such changeable weather recently we were lucky to enjoy a mostly rain-free day; the Tiger beetles obviously took advantage of the warm sun too!

  1. Stunningly beautiful creatures! I've only seen singles before. Erringden Moor must be a hotspot for them.
