The above has been added to the Purple Lexicon.  It refers to the practice, carried out by both males and females, of forcibly removing or eviscerating flocks of young tits from sallow thickets.

This butterfly has every reason to seriously hate tits, particularly in sallow thickets.  Of course, de-titting also occurs in male territories, but on a more cursory level.
