Johanna’s 10 year old son was very observant as on 12/07/21 he spotted this tiny Vapourer moth caterpillar on a wisteria plant by their front door in Southbourne.

Johanna says it was just 1 cm long, so maybe it is an early stage and that is why is is particularly fluffy and not the colour as shown in the reference book , Field Guide to Caterpillars of Great Britain and Ireland
