Mullein Moth caterpillars

I came across these two Mullein Moth Cucullia verbasci caterpillars feeding on Water Figwort plants in The Paddocks ditch.  It looked like they had both started eating at  the top of a plant and had just kept munching away.  A very distinctive caterpillar which signals to predators that it is not nice to eat!
