On 10/09/19 Roger found an Old Lady trying to gain entry to his house through the kitchen window!

This amusingly named moth is often the butt of jokes and I couldn’t resist, sorry!

An unmistakeable large brown moth with very broad forewings which comes to light during July-September. It often roosts in outbuildings or old birds nests during the day in a variety of habitats including gardens.
