Good morning all  Lovely to see the photos and chat from across many miles ... t'internet being put to it's proper use 

Plans have changed a bit and now I'm going to sons tomorrow instead of today.  So what to do today?  Well we are going to reorganise the area where the pots of ferns live and incorporate the hedgehog feeding station into it making it less accessible to the neighbours cat who seems to have  discovered it   

Sitting here in bed we've been watching a flock of young starlings practising aerial ballet moves. These past few weeks the group has been forming up as youngsters fledge and join together perching on the cluster ofTV arials on the roof opposite. Fascinating

Ignore the WUM. The Mods will deal with it when they're back at their desks.  

Your photo  looks like the cocoon of a moth caterpillar ... don't know what type - inside the cocoon it'll form a chrysalis and then pupate and eventually emerge as a fully-fledged adult moth.  Keep it in the same sort of environment as you found it and it should be fine.  

Edited to say:  I'm sure it'll be fine in your bug house
