Creigiau - Tuesday 04 October

Forecast didn't look too bad so chanced the box on Tuesday night. Although the temperature held up, with a minimum of 12C, the  chilly north easterly wind gusted quite strongly through the night. I ended up with 12 moths of 10 species - and some of these looked more than a little worse for wear.
Two were definitely first for the year - Flounced Chestnut (unfortunately found dead in one of the egg boxes) and Beaded Chestnut ( a bit battered but I think my ID is correct).

Again a bit battered, but I think this may be Pine Carpet

and I'm not sure what this could be ...

I would be grateful for confirmation/correction of my Ids and for any help with the last image.
