eggs were found this week, exactly the same number as last week, and so the
grand total of tagged eggs now stands at 212.
Three of those eggs have been predated (or at least can’t be found!).
There are 2 sets of triplets and 15 doublets.No more doubles or trebles were found
this week, but the remains of one of the original 3 sets of triplets was found by way of a bit of dead twig lying on the ground, with
the three combined tags on – no eggs though.
There is no doubt that a horse was the culprit, and she is now grazing in
a lower field.
One of the bonuses of the project has been the
unexpected. For example, the very well
camouflaged caterpillar in the attached photograph.
