Take your home with you when you go

A beautifully constructed larval case caught my eye. It was 1-2 cm long, tapered and covered in many small twigs. The lavae live in the case and feed by protruding their head from one end, and carry the case with them when they move on to another food source. This one was on bracken. It's probably one of the Case Moths of the Psychidae Family.
