My First Moth Sighting of 2017
We have noticed a few more moths about this week. The (as yet unidentified) one in the photographs spent a day on our window, but I am guessing that it may have a broken wing. I wonder if the photos suggest the same scenario to you? Having seen the photo of the Lunar Underwing here (if you scroll down the linked page), I am wondering if an encounter with a spider's web might also be the reason for the misplaced wing for the moth in my photo. It was on the outside of the glass: the top picture shows the underside - and antennae.
I understand that moths like the Spring Usher and the Early Moth would normally be taking to the wing at about this time of year.
