Rosencrantz and Guildenstern and a Jersey Tiger are dead

male Jersey Tiger

This male Jersey Tiger was fatally attracted to the bright lights of London’s West End. I found it last night, dead, in the foyer of the Theatre Royal, Haymarket. Although it was appropriate to the existentialist theme of the night’s performance, it seemed an unlikely place to find one. It is a new 10-km square according to the Atlas but, as this map shows, it’s not far for a moth to fly from the extensive green space of St. James’ Park/ Green Park/ Buckingham Palace Gardens.

    Dave, at least this time I hadn’t travelled all the way to the machair of County Mayo, only to find dead click-beetles!
