Cwm Colhuw id queries

Had a quick trip down to Cwm Colhuw this morning and there was a bit of insect activity in the few relatively sheltered areas. Apart from Micropterix calthella, I saw this little chap - is it Esperia sulphurella?
Then there were a couple of small caterpillars - I'm not sure how identifiable these are in good photographs never mind these wind-affected afforts but any ideas would be appreciated! The closest I could get with this was hebrew character?
And I have no idea of this one...about 20mm long.


  1. Yes that looks like sulphurella. Had a few in the garden this spring.

    Sorry no idea about the caterpillars!

  2. I've seen a few E sulphurella in the garden in the last few weeks, they must be having a good year. I've not seen them here before.

  3. Thanks George - attractive little moths.
