Yellow-Tail Moth Caterpillar

B arrived home from school last Friday with a shoe-box full of hazel leaves and some very furry caterpillars. His school favours outdoor learning and his class have been touring each others gardens. In one of them they found these caterpillars and for some reason we ended up as custodians over the weekend.

I’m fairly confident that they are yellow-tail moth caterpillars.

I don’t think I remember ever being encouraged to be curious about the countryside around me when I was at school. We did used to take frogspawn in to school every spring though, for some reason we thought that our teachers were pleased if we did.
