Today I made a brief return to the Wiltshire Wood to check up on Egbert, Blackadder and Baldrick. All are doing well, but only Baldrick was on the same leaf. And Baldrick's no longer "bald" (and therefore technically "Rick") now that he's changed into his second instar and his horns have appeared. I also managed to find one of the other first instar larvae and watched it move off its seat pad to feed on the same leaf, before it returned back to base!
