Be aware

With the current warm weather,  processionary caterpillars are starting to leave their nests in pine trees. They are unmistakable with their furry bodies and their habit of following each other in procession.

These caterpillars should not be touched nor disturbed because their defence mechanism is to eject those fine hairs which can give you a very nasty rash.
 People taking dogs for walks need to be extra vigilant because if your pet gets too curious they could end up with a nasty swollen tongue which would cause them problems breathing.
