Cloaked Shoot and Marbled Bell

Common Cloaked Shoot, Gypsonoma dealbana
I have found many moths at Rewell  Wood the past 2 days: Coleophora species, Common Cloaked Shoot, Common Marble, Hoary Bell, Inlaid Grass-veneer, Common Nettle-tap, European Corn Borer, Long-winged Pearl, Marbled Bell and a Yellow Oak Button. Plenty of butterflies seen: Red Admiral, Silver-washed Fritillary, Meadow Browns, Ringlets, Large Skippers, Comma.
The Caloptilia species from 3 days ago was narrowed down by an expert to 2 species, one of which requires Alder as its foodplant, the other requires Birch. There is a large stand of birch where I found it but no Alder, so the conclusion is that the moth is a Red Birch Slender.
note added 16 November, 2020: the Coleophora species was dissected by Tim Wilton and determined by examination of the genitalia to be a male Tipped Oak Case-bearer, Coleophora flavipennella.
