Map Winged Swift larva 16 10 10
Found this restless Map Winged Swift larva on Whiteholme Drain yesterday,at 39mm must be looking for a spot for the winter,and hopefully emerge next spring,as theres no bracken in this area,must have fed on roots of other plants ! poss grasses,there are a few creeping thistles and heather in area where found,it could rapidly move backwards,which when you think about it could be usefull living in a tunnel below ground !
