We have been tramping the moors recently in the hope of finding an Emperor Moth, and came across this caterpillar of the species on Highbrown Knoll above Pecket Well. (below)
When I tried to photograph it on the ground when it was moving fast the auto-focus couldn’t cope with its hairs. (below)
We found this Shrew freshly dead. Note the long pointed nose.
They obviously live at all altitudes in our area.
I forgot to put something down to show the size. It seemed too big for a Pygmy Shrew, though its tail proportion seems to point to that. (two thirds of body length – Common Shrew’s tail is said to be about half the length of the body.)
