A Plague of Caterpillars

These caterpillars have laid waste a Spindle Tree in Abingdon. I am told they also had a go at it last year.

If it carries on like this there will be no Spindle alongside the Crown and Thistle, and the Spindle Ermine Moths will have nowhere to leave their eggs.

Thanks to Michael for the Pictures.

On Friday 22nd May Peachcroft Christian Centre will be showing THE AGE OF STUPID in their community cinema. In the film a man living alone in the devastated world of 2055, looks back at ‘archive’ footage from 2007 and asks: why didn’t we stop this we had the chance? Doors open 7.00pm. Entry £2.50.
