Donadea woods woodland wander

Men's Group at Donadea Woods - Tree Seed Collecting

Last week I took my men's group to Donadea to go seed collecting. We found acorns, conkers, sycamore and maple helicopters, lime seeds and beech masts. And this little fella! Any thoughts on who he is?

  1. Further investgation leads up to believe that it's a Pale Tussock moth caterpillar. says it is 'local in Ireland' but Philip Strickland's says it is common. Former says that it feeds on a range of deciduous shrubs and trees and that it used to be a pest of hop when it was commonly grown.
