When did you find the eggs? This looks like Buff Ermine to me, but I thought they usually hatched in July?

Hi Martin Mum found them

Hi Martin

Mum found them earlier this month. They are back with her at the moment to 'baby sit' whilst we are in Derbyshire (seeing NOWT in the rain :( )
Hopefully at least some will make it through, then there will be a definitive answer!
