Description:

In car when brushed a tickle from my neck and jumped out of my skin when it felt cold and squashy. Relieved and fascinated to find this caterpillar. we had just been walking in woods by Langsett Reservoir. We stopped in a layby and after photographing it, released it onto a stone wall adjacent to woods. Hope it's ready to pupate and not going hungry!
