|Shoulder Stripe (Earophila badiata)|
The moth had been lured to this location by an outside light and it had clamped itself onto the plaster close to the front door of one of these ancient buildings. I hope its camouflage (badiata - bay-coloured) will keep it safe until nightfall for it loves the Spring (from the Greek 'ear') and this morning was one of the most perfect of the season yet to come.
Recording a moth in Suffolk for a blog that is based in Yorkshire needs a connection and there is one. Kersey cloth - a dense, warm woollen cloth - was made in the village in medieval times. Another location was Calderdale.
