It was a warm, still night last night, it brought several moths. There must be a lot more flying about in the garden that I never see.

4 x Blastobasis adustella.
1 x  Agriphila tristella.
1 x Double Striped Pug.
1 x Small Phoenix (TBC).

The last in the list above is very worn, I belive it to be a Small Phoenix. As always, I shall be delighted to be disabused on that.

My thanks to Charlie and Andy for correcting my IDs below. I've updated the name of the moths.

Blastobasis adustella.

Agriphila tristella.

Double Striped Pug.

Common Marbled Carpet.

Thanks Charlie.

Andy, the reason I thought is was a small phoenix, was the it looked as if it had it's rear end raised. The angle I took it as was poor. I looked for the brown ovals near the bottom of the wing that common marbled carpets have, and of course saw them. Missed them on first examination. Thanks.
