The caterpillars have spun their cocoons!

21st May 2020

Hello boys and girls!

I woke up this morning to a fabulous surprise! The 5 caterpillars had spun their cocoons!

I transferred them carefully to the special butterfly net and have set them in a nice bright and sunny place in my kitchen.

The caterpillars will stay in their cocoons for up to 2 weeks. As soon as I see any butterflies emerging I will do my best to take a video!

If you would like to take a look at some beautiful butterflies now, ask your grown up to go onto YouTube and search 'Come Outside Butterflies'. You'll be able to watch a wee video about Auntie Mabel and Pippin visiting some butterflies!

I'll keep you updated on our cocoons,

Take care and stay safe
