The weather continues treacherous, so no trapping. But the moths have done the sensible thing and come indoors. Here's a Copper Underwing (or possibly a Svensson's Copper Underwing, sorry) which chose a very dodgy place to perch: the cord on one of our bedroom sash windows. Luckily, the rain was such that the window stayed shut. My political collaborator in the moth world, Michael Meadowcroft, is also playing host to visitors. Here's a Large Yellow Underwing which appeared on his back door. As I mentioned last time he sent me a moth, Michael swapped the Housev of Commons, where he was Liberal MP for West Leeds, for a job running elections in new democracies. I am working on him to promote the moth as a symbol for parties on the ballot paper. They could each have a different one - yellow, blue and red and green.
