I think it is a case moth cocoon Kez, and if you put it in a jar with some mesh on top secured with an elastic band and keep it somewhere out of the weather you can observe it. Not all case moths emerge, the lady case moths stay in there and the males come to them to mate.
Thanks Louise. I've put it in a jar with a bit of chux banded around the top - hopefully that will do. It will exciting if something does emerge!
I remember finding these as a kid.. never did manage to get a moth out of the ones we tried keeping.. but still very interesting!
