  4. Looks like a fox moth caterpillar to me. They remain as caterpillars through the winter, feeding until September before hibernating till spring. They're heath and coastal moths. Here's a link if you're interested in seeing the adult: http://ukmoths.org.uk/show.php?id=1999 (if that doesn't work, go to ukmoths.org and type in fox moth. CT :-)

    1. We get quite a lot of them over near the beach on the dunes this time of year. Trouble is they wiggle across the road and well.....!
