A Scarlet Tiger moth caterpillar, photographed back on the 13/03/2015 in the garden of one of our volunteers, situated in Winterborne Stickland, where we have been told, the main foodplants Comfrey and Bramble are found. This species overwinters as a larva before pupating in May and emerging as an adult moth in June or July, so look out for them now!
