As I had to stay local today I decided to do some scrub clearance on the patch. With so many small bushes trying to take over that will destroy breeding areas of many rare butterflies and moths I try to spend some time each year to keep it manageable. During a short break I went hunting for Wall Brown larva. I had found 2 on Friday, and one of those I located again as it was sitting on a grass blade.
A young Wall Brown larva. (Just over 1 cm long).
