    Is there anyone in the Whangarei area who has a good supply of nettles and would like some admiral caterpillars? I’m at Mt Tiger and I could either take some into town, or someone is welcome to come out here to collect. There has been a kind of population explosion on the nettle patch, and I’m just having to leave them to the wasps I’m afraid. My two large caterpillar castles are full to bursting, and I’m having to replenish them with nettles every day, so I would welcome someone to lessen the numbers!

    Thrilled today to have another large beautiful red emerge – number 15 this year – so hopefully there may be a few more to follow.
