Peppered Moths in Luddenden

                                           It's been a good week in Luddenden for Peppered Moths with 19 so far


                                          this is the usual variety (17 of these)

                    
                                          this seems intermediate - is this insularia -illustrations show an all dark body





                                          this is the melanistic type, this one had a white forehead
