Peppered Moth Update

Having said that I hadn't caught the melanic form f. carbonaria form in St Margaret's, this turned up last night. It is a bit worn, moths do wear out quite quickly, so it doesn't have a lot of scales on its left wing tip, but there is no sign of any of the white scales that give the "peppered" affect that gives it its name. It does have two "headlights" but this is normal in this form. It's funny that it turned up so soon after I wrote about it, psychic moth?
