With it being really cold last night and the sun shining this morning I was wondering if the Wall Brown larvae that I found in December would be visible. On the bank where the larvae are the sun was beaming down as well as being protected from the wind and it was actually quite warm. I only checked the 2 grass clumps where the larvae were in December and in both spots I found one sitting around 2 inches up a grass stem. The first one still had some dew on it, the other one that was lower on the bank was sitting on a bit of grass that was well eaten at the top, presumably by the larva.
Both larva had grown a little with them being approx 1.5 cm long.
Wall Brown larva with dew drops. Also note the forked tail.
A slightly larger Wall Brown larva with eaten grass.
A pair of Stonechat were also nearby. Hopefully they will not spot the well camouflaged and slow moving Wall larvae!!
