Needless to say , you know which stall got the most attention .
When I got home , my wife said she was moving some logs , when she found eight of these in a
log , Stag Beetle larvae . Needless to say , the log was replaced and covered with others .
Now , commenting on last night's post , Steve (New Hythe) thought the Pale Tussock moth caterpillar was one of the most attractive caterpillars . I suggested The Vapourer (pictured below) . I leave it to the reader to make their own decisions .

Like busses , they come in twos , as it was with the Pale Tussock moth caterpillar . After my neighbour finding one yesterday , one of the layers found this one today . Today's specimen was prepared to un-curl , and was very active .
All day at Shorne Park tomorrow , chances of wildlife ?

The caterpillar refused to uncurl , but I knew I had seen this one before , with its yellow tufts , black bands , and that mauve bristle on the rear end . Later I looked back pictures on the computer and found it , Pale Tussock moth caterpillar .

Forgot to mention last night , the family of Dormice found on the August survey , had been successfully reared and left home , as an empty nest was found this time round .
