Spindle Ermine Moth: These prolific caterpillars or McDonald's for birds have once again taken over the bushes of tank no.5  
The bushes are infested with thousands of caterpillars stripping them of all their leaves and only leaving behind a white silk sheet which covers the twigs the fences and drips down on to the pathway, AWESOME.

Whitethroat: I decided to pay  a visit straight from work but I didn't see all that much although I didn't spend much time there.

I did spot a family of Whitethroat flying around tank no.5 which was delightful, I often find Whitethroat very wary birds but these juvenile birds seemed a little bit more approachable.
