    In Wellington I have 20 large caterpillars and 10 cocoons, but this year is different from others as the very strong, cold winds have reduced the number of caterpillars and blown some of the cocoons off the plants. Also the overwintering butterflies (there were 8 in the parkland behind me all winter) barely survived long enough to lay eggs. Thus I have caterpillars but there are no butterflies until the next generation emerges. This does not usually happen so late into the summer, so the window of opportunity to establish another generation after the winter has been very short.
