Hello all,

I wonder if one of could help me identify what's going on here?

I live in the south of England and just outside the village there is a
small tree./ bush at the side of the road which seems to have been
attacked by the artist Christo.
It appears to be wrapped in a thick white shroud...  The shroud, although
obviously animal in origin,  is like thickish polyethelyne sheet, very
tough, dry to the touch and not at all sticky.

There are lots of caterpillars crawling around inside..

Can anyone identify the culprits ?
