As i was weeding my allotment i noticed alot of black and yellow striped caterpilers.
after some research i found them to be cinnabar moth caterpilers.
the strange thing was they were only eating certain weeds and not my lettuce,cabbage nor beans.weird or not.
I then discovered on google , their food is mainly ragwort.
So they can live happily on my my plot,i will even leave some weeds for them
Just as i was about to put some waste in my compost bin ,there tucked up in a
ball was a hedgehog suckling two tiny babies,so i stood back , looked, but left them alone.
Isnt life just great
