This lovely moth was sitting on the door-frame of a friend's flat when I visited the other day.
I shared the photo in the Edinburgh Natural History Society Facebook group and someone told me it's a map winged swift.I looked this up and found that it's a fairly unusual moth to find in an urban area, but apparently it's near the end of it's life and may in fact have blown in on the wind. It was a wonderful surprise to find it.
If you keep your eyes open you never know what you might find even in the most unexpected places!
