A Tale of Twelve Kittens
The Sallow Kitten kittens, conceived on 14th August, continue to make good progress:
Three of the Kittens
They will have to get a move on, though, before the food supply dries up, Sallow is abundant around here but the leaves are beginning to turn brown. The autumn colouration does help to disguise the larvae though, they can be quite difficult to see amid the foliage.
I put two actinic traps out last night but the results were disappointing, only 20 moths recorded although they included two FFYs, Autumnal Rustic (at last) and Frosted Orange.
