Lindsay came across this fox moth caterpillar on one of the local Dorset heaths recently. If you look closely there are some larvae attached to the end of it. Having asked around a few entomologist colleagues the consensus is that it they could be from a parasitic wasp like Ichneumon or Braconid. An entomologist from Bournemouth University is trying to hatch them so will post the results if it all goes well!

Funny looking thing! 🦇

What a whopper!!

Stunner!

Interesting photo of brown and grey long-eared bats in the hand. One obvious feature from this photo is how transparent the tragus is on the brown long-eared on the left compared to the grey on the right. And the browns long toes!!
