Taken a few minutes ago. This fine specimen zoomed around the kitchen a few times and landed on a cereal box.
You know I always try to accurately identify and name all the stuff I post here, but moths are tricky. I think this is a Square-spot Rustic (Xestia xanthographa).

Hi Ian, this looks just like the one that fell off my shopping trolley in the cereal aisle of Tesco yesterday, she's sure getting around. Mmmm I see a connection here, did you get cereal from Tesco this week?? ;-)

Nah, Mr la-di-dah Bison only buys cereal from Waitrose (or I do until the Durham store closes for good this weekend).

Thanks Sparxie. I wish it was a Hawk Moth, I'd love for one of those monsters to fly into my kitchen :)

I'll swap you the moth for what I've had in my house this week !

First I had a Tarantula in my office the other day, then tonight I had a snake for the second time in two months on my terrace..... I don't like either!!!

Is that a Dorset cereals box? If so well done for finding those delicious grains!
