Day Two - Poop!

Amongst all the really useful information on the internet about rearing butterflies and moths is the warning that caterpillars poop a lot. They were not wrong, this is from this morning, after just 16 hours from one caterpillar:
The rest of their home was littered with it too, time for a clean out me thinks. They needed fresh leaves as well, so everybody out! We decided to put the stems of the bramble and nettles in water so they would stay fresher longer. Everybody safely back and refreshed. Still munching, still exploring, still sleeping & of course still pooping!!
