Ploughcroft and Lee Mount etc. - 2nd September

Thought I'd found something exotic outside,  climbing up to the top of the kitchen window.....then realised it's a Large White Butterfly caterpillar. Our neighbour hardly has any leaves left on his brassicas but this one 'legged it' before he got hold of it ! Nearly 30 mm long.

Lots of Red Admirals butterflies about today. I had around 10 pass by over Ploughcroft this morning and nearby, 3 Speckled Wood and one Small Copper. I was on the look-out for Wall Brown's but without success today.
Also later on, several 'fly through' Red Admirals' at home and then more as we drove over past Rishworth to Oldham and back this afternoon.
