Thursday 31st July

More butterflies...well in their juvenile form! Mike Easterbrook informed that a number of Small Tortoiseshell caterpillars were feeding on some nettles on the East Malling Research site, and sure enough there they were! What they come to I'm not sue, but fingers crossed they survive what ever seems to be decimating the species to repopulate next year.
