Some very Hungry Caterpillars now doing well at the Obs.

The Bedstraw Hawkmoth pictured in the previous post not only managed to get itself caught in the Moth Trap more than once, but also produced Eggs. These survived the transition to the Caterpillar stage, and these tiny eggs have gone on to produce equally small but now rapidly growing caterpillars !! Watch this space for the NOA'S very own version of Autumn watch - but without the traditional webcam peering into the nest.
