It was on a bedroom carpet at the Bell Inn. I first thought it was dead,
but as I picked it up it fluttered back to the carpet.
I'm sure there are many thousands seen in just such a situation, Trevor. Butterflies must find houses and outbuildings irresistible from late autumn onwards.
Wishing you all the best for 2018.
