I was a visiting recorder at the end of May - 28th- 30th, and in a grassy bowl above Durdle door (sy805804) i found at least 17 Grass eggar larvae, mainly 4th/5th instar; also below the fields here on the cliff-edge above Man-o-war cove i found another 7, so it appears they are doing ok in this particular spot. Most were feeding on course grasses, and were quite easy to spot, especially in the evenings. Other species found here included numerous Brown-tail larvae, 3 Oak eggar larvae, 15 Drinker moth larvae, 3 Lackey larval webs and 4 Wood tiger moths. I've included pictures of Grass eggar larvae.
