 Not sure maybe Marbled Minor agg ?  (quite small about 13mm wing length)

When I emptied the trap this morning a local House Sparrow came in, surprising me as it whizzed past my head after a moth - but it missed thank goodness ! This follows on from the previous night when a bat came in after a moth - it was so quick I don't know whether it got a meal or not !!
