Yellow-tail Caterpillar

We found this attractive Yellow-tail caterpillar in a prominent position on sallow in a hedge near Mynachty'r Graig at the start of our coastal walk yesterday.  They overwinter as a small larva but apparently at this time of year sit openly by day and are often conspicuous on hedges.

  1. Interesting that it was on the coast, last year I found one apparently feeding on a thrift plant at the HT line nr Cwm Tydu.
