Green Longhorn and Wood-rush Case-bearer

male Green Longhorn moth, Adela reaumurella
I have made three visits to Rewell Wood recently and have seen my first Green Longhorn of the year, a male waving its wonderfully long antennae on top of a nettle. I also found my first Wood-rush Case-bearer, a tiny moth.
  We visited Angmering Estate woods yesterday with Penny to see the bluebells.

Late addition: the unidentified larva now has a name, thanks to Vince Massimo of ukbutterflies.co.uk. It is a Meadow Brown larva:
