For those of you following George’s ongoing saga of the Speckled Wood which is reluctant to leave the warmth and comfort of his house he has just sent us this update on 04/11/2019:

The the Specked Wood is still with us. It decided the floor was the best place, but we had a near miss when the postman opened the door and nearly stood on it, so we keep it in a plastic insect viewing tub my son had, and take the lid off when it is safe. We leave a window open for it to go but it won’t.
