Bug Hotel

http://www.nordictouch.no/3811-dno47927-dating-norway-i-gildeskål.html Having seen a post from Buglife I decided to add a Bug Hotel to the insect house part of the garden for them to hibernate in. I used 2 old bird feeder guardians I wasn’t using and filled them with leaves.

I then left them for a couple of days for the leaves to dry out

Then I moved them into position and put some stones on top to stop water getting in. Clearing the space I found a caterpillar which moved straight in after I put him back!

Here’s the caterpillar, but I’m not sure what it is.
