I've spent quite a while over the years searching for Stigmella myrtillella after Paul seemed to have such success in finding mines at several sites. Finally, after a walk up to Norland village on a glorious summer's day yesterday, I came across this one in among the countless, fungal infected Bilberry leaves. As Paul rightly said, it's best searched for on south or south-east facing slopes.
More easily found was this Rose Leaf Miner mining my garden rose bush. I watched it over the course of a few days as the mine developed and then took it indoors to rear through as the mine neared completion.
A couple of days ago the adult emerged - all 3mm of it. Thankfully it posed quite well for a few minutes allowing me to get my first decent shot of a Nepticulid.
Normally they rarely stay still during daylight hours.
