We saw this, and several like it, on a walk from Ludham Bridge to How Hill in early June. It was a couple
of inches long and looks like some kind of moth caterpillar. Does anyone know what it might grow into?

Regards

Steve

The trouble with common sense
is that it really isn't all
that common.

Looks like it could be a 'woolly bear' otherwise known as the garden tiger.  Might be wrong, and Craig could correct me

Seen adults under the security light at Ludham Bridge Boatyard and recorded them as adults at Horning.

Real rarity in Hertfordshire these days

Thanks for the identification Liz.

That looks like the one! The adult looks like a fine handsome beast too. We don't get them in
our part of Kent either.

Looks like a Garden Tiger caterpillar, also sometimes known as the 'wooly bear' to me.
The adult moth is a real beauty

I saw one of those on our mooring in Thurne, so I picked
it up and put it in the hedge so it didn't get squashed,
beautiful thing it was.

Mud weighted on Barton Broad last week and saw several of these beautiful moths, I'd never seen one before, and was struck by the sheer intense colouring, really deep scarlet.

The adult is even more spectacular when a bit annoyed! It flashes a bright red patch of scales above its head - this was was in my moth-trap at Horning on Saturday morning

Yep they are regulars in my Horning trap - hopefully some next week when I come up for Horning Week.

Very scarce in Hertfordshire although as an aside a probable Fen Wainscot turned up this morning well off the beaten track.
(Craig will understand!)

Oh this just reminded me Liz - I took some photos for you of a few big
moths!

See you soon


They say that 'Hard work never killed anyone' however, sleepless nights, stress, not taking breaks & not eating correctly may just get you there early!!
