26.05.12. Nature Notes (…and so it begins!).

…and so it begins…

…our little friends the Spindle Ermine Moth caterpillars are beginning to munch their way through the Spindle bushes along the top track on No 6 tank today. Watch this area over the next few weeks.

It starts like this…

…and ends like these two pictures below taken in 2010.

All from a little Spindle Ermine Moth caterpillar which grows to one of these critters.
