A nep from last spring.

Harry's just had a look at this one and is confident it's Stigmella lapponica. It was disturbed from Silver Birch in North Dean wood in April last year. Not a rare species by any means but the adults are not often reared because the larvae mine in June/July and the adults don't appear again until the following spring.

Wingspan 5-7mm.
