My Eggar cats just started to become lethargic and two have already pupated in the heather.
Andy's Fox Moth cats are still munching their way through the heather.
Hopefully, I might get the chance to film some of these pupating.....the Eggars started (and finished) whilst my back was turned.
I collected a couple of cocoons from Tag Loop that looked like the 5-spot Burnets that I filmed earlier this year. As all the Tufted Vetch flowers have now died back, I was wondering if these are likely to be 6-spot Burnets. Any ideas?
I'm also trying to find good sites to film Small Coppers and Purple Hairstreaks.....if the weather allows. Both should (hopefully) be still on the wing over the next couple of weeks, so any suggestions welcome. Cheers.
