Something ate my isolation !
today (inspired by one of recent inspections) I took the IR snapshot on my own walls and found what on the picture. I swear a year ago that was not there, it's pretty new insulation !
My guess is that I see kind of life there (I do not mention the fancy shape, but the fact that something deteriorated thermal isolation .. )

The wall is porous concrete, and ETICS on it. Styrofoam tiles were layed on the foundation wall about 1m deep (and above of course), but external finish layer was made only down to the ground line. Probably mouses found that PS is pretty nice place to live in.
(On the picture, the wall at left is not insulated thus you see thermal bridge in the corner.. that's no matter for now)
Could you confirm my guess, or may have other explanation of the anomaly, please ?

Thanks for reading - my best regards.
