Drinker finds a drinker

En route to the pub last night I was early and as I had some time spare, stopped off at the North Dock dunes LNR at Llanelli. It was too early for `dusking` (8.30pm, and I did n`t have my mothing gear with me anyway), so just went for a general walk. There were many drinker caterpillars ambling around and they looked pretty fully grown.
One has to be also aware of the much scarcer grass eggers at this site (which have been recorded from this locality); I also once found one (an adult) on the pavement on the way home from the pub - liquid inspiration!
