Fox Moth Caterpillars

Whilst working on bramble management on the edge of one of our hay meadows this afternoon I came across one edge where I counted 87 mature Fox Moth caterpillars. They were mainly crawling over bramble and in the grass. I have never seen so many at once before and usually I see them in our rhos pasture area.

  1. That's a very impressive tally; the biggest Glamorgan records are both estimates of 50 larvae. To put it further in context, of the 308 Glamorgan records, only nine are in double figures.
