hunting dogs and processionary caterpillars

 this morning some hunting dogs had run past probably on the sent of the wild boar, I met the hunter (he wasn't armed) who was trying to track them with a gps

 this is the nest of the pine processionary caterpillar, causing havoc among the pine trees in certain areas which leaves more space for the native trees less likley to spread forest fires, the hunting dogs can have problems with them tho.
 a little bit of ice on the bowls but its warmer this morning
