    Could be the caterpillar of the Swallow Prominent moth

    I think it is certainly a moth larva. There are several that look similar to yours:- Clouded Drab, Bright-line Brown- eye, Angel shade, Green Silver-lines. Go on the web. There are loads of pictures for you to choose from.

  • Thanks, I tried looking it up on the web before posting but couldn't figure out which one it is lol I shall keep an eye on it image

    There's nothing to indicate size there NGimage

  • I'd say it was about 1cm long nutcutlet image
