Stigmella carpinella, new to Worcestershire.

Despite the generally low numbers of moths around this year new county records are still to be found, Stigmella carpinella being the latest from my garden at Halesowen. The food plant is Hornbeam and I planted 10 trees in 2007 so I'm hoping the moth may breed though no mines for the species have yet been confirmed.
