A Big Caterpillar Down The Monty

Anyone identify this caterpillar

Bridge 84 restoration ongoing
Yesterday we walked down the canal to see how far the restoration has reached. The banks have certainly grown up since our last visit and another section is now in water although at a lower level from Bridge 83-84.  The water's a long way down but the ducks have got their own swimming pool as it'll be quite a long time until  any powered boats can go that far as even when they reach Crickheath Wharf.


We found a large caterpillar on the towpath and put it out of the way of passing feet. I haven't identified it yet.......perhaps somebody can.


Were moving on today, a little further down to the winding hole at Gronwen Wharf to turn around then retrace our steps back to the Weston Arm. Our passage up the locks is booked for Wednesday. It's so peaceful down here.....we love it!


UPDATE LOOKED ON THE INTERNET IT'S AN ELEPHANT HAWKMOTH CATERPILLAR!!
