Coleophora paripennella

Coleophora paripennella
      In need of a break from gardening jobs yesterday, I popped up to Penorchard Meadows WWT reserve  on the Clent Hills. Almost immediately I entered the first meadow I spotted the feeding signs of Coleophora paripennella on knapweed and below the leaf was the larval case. However, searching for another hour revealed nothing more than a few Ancylis badiana!

  1. I'm looking forward to the wind finally dropping on Sunday to get out and about. Maybe even a warmer night...

    1. Kinver Edge tonight, cool, windswept open heath - should be great!
