Eerie sight of caterpillars covering tree in web of silk in North Yorkshire

Thousands of caterpillars were spotted shrouding a tree in webbing in North Yorkshire.

The footage, captured on the banks of the River Wharfe near Kilnsey, shows the caterpillars’ silk web covering the trunk and the branches of a tree.

The crawling creatures are thought to be ermine moth caterpillars, which form a protective web to protect themselves from predators whilst feeding.

The phenomenon can be seen in the late Spring and beginning of the Summer as the caterpillars prepare to transform into moths in July and August.
