A few birds looked at this but left it alone I presums with all those hairs it could be quite an irritant to the skin,so I left it alone
I don't know what it is, but it's very impressive - and a lovely clear photo too!
Looks like the caterpillar of the Vapourer moth
Thanks for that Gill does the moth look look as impressive?
Tony here's what the moth looks like - The Vapourer Orgyia antiqua - UKMoths
Probably the most boring moth around! The female has such small wings she appears wingless and the male is a dingy brown
Thanks for the pictures Flighty was expecting a spectacular moth
You're welcome. As Gill says sadly not, although some are really eye-catching but typically they're the ones I never see.
