Some garden firsts last night

After a couple of cool weeks with very few moths, things finally improved in my garden last night with just over 100 moths in the trap, comprising around 50 different species (I am still puzzling over some of  the micros). There were 2 macros that were new for my garden list. The first was a Great Prominent.

The other new macro was this Mullein.

There were 19 other macros that were new for the year, including the moth below which I think is a Lesser Treble-bar (Lesser Treble-bar seems to be more common in my garden than Treble Bar).

I need some help with a few of the micros from last night's catch - I'll put them in a separate post.
