|Pale Tussock Moth Caterpillar|
This brightly-coloured caterpillar was found today by one of our volunteers. It's a Pale Tussock Moth caterpillar. The moth is a much duller brown and pale-coloured.
The caterpillar feeds on oaks and lime trees until October when it will spin its silk cocoon and overwinter as a pupa.
A beautiful creature!
