Parc Slip last week

I set the trap on wednesday night last week and had about 60 species in total. A few highlights were my 3rd ever poplar grey, 3rd ever dark spectacle, 1st bordered beauty and agonopterix angelicella since 2014 and FFY of black arches, herald, dun-bar, beautiful hook-tip, rosy footman, dark marbled carpet, purple thorn, red-barred tortrix and Agriphila straminella. A few I'm not sure of too:

Gypsonoma sociana?

Phyllonorycter sp.

Then there's this plume which I initially thought was Adaina microdactyla but I now don't think it's small enough. It's not one I'm aware of having come across before though.
