Unsure again

After 2 days away I was really looking forward to trapping again and it was a fairly mild evening with a reasonable amount of moths around early on, things got a bit windy later on and there were a few spots of rain but I still got a nice selection of moths. I got 3 Thorn moths which I took to be 2 Dusky Thorn and a Canary Shouldered Thorn but as I am still waiting to get assorted other Thorns I took a photo of one of them for confirmation.....the Canary Shouldered doesn't seem to have the right wing colour or 'pattern' to me so is that something else?. I also got a blue-ish carpet moth which is probably just another Common Marbled variation but it would be great to be proved wrong!.
The trap was out from 8pm to 3:45am
