A visit to Tag meadow this morning proved fruitful whilst looking over a Crack Willow tree. Two interesting larvae were found - this exotic looking Sallow Kitten (above) and early instar Poplar Hawknoth (below).
The Kitten was right at the top of my target species - it's the first I've seen of any of the Puss Moth/Kitten group :-)
If it's not parasitized the adult should emerge next month.
