Yesterday, whilst walking with Bok in the woods, I came across two long lines of Processionary Caterpillars. One lot was about three metres long, the other about two.
May I remind everyone (who lives in areas where such creatures exist) that these Caterpillars are extremely dangerous for unwary dogs. Our own late Monty once tried to eat one, and not only became very ill, but eventually lost about a third of his tongue from the poison.
It is worth also remembering that they are dangerous for humans as well. I hate to say it, but they are best squashed when found.
You can't mistake them at this time of year, they walk in long lines across paths, etc.
