We’ve seen the impressive caterpillar before and now here’s the adult.
Extremely well disguised as a wood chip. Though not so much when I had to remove it from the rake and it hopped onto my jumper.
The moth and caterpillar aren’t a problem on the allotment, as it mostly likes to eat buddleia or weeds. Does anyone else think the face looks like a baboon? Maybe it’s just me.Butterfly Conservation website, where they have a good ‘identify a moth’ page
