Small Tortoiseshell Caterpillars

We are proud to announce the arrival of our latest display - about 20 Small Tortoiseshell caterpillars happily munching nettles in their pavilion. I only got stung a little bit in getting them safely set up! As if to herald their arrival, an adult Small Tortoiseshell found its way into the Centre this morning and was relieved to be released!
