East of Burry Port

I revisited the shingle beach and sandy grassland at Cefn Padrig beach just east of Burry Port this afternoon, in order to get some better photos of what are considered to be narrow-bordered 5-spot burnet caterpillars.

             Above: Cefn Padrig with the shingle beach in the background and, beyond, Gower.

   Above: NB5SB caterpillars have much longer setae (hairs) than the other common burnets.
Above: one of many pupae present.
Above: I also flushed this grass rivulet, which was placid enough to be photographed.
