I wasn't expecting that!

I should have taken finding the Engrailed on the garden fence as a good omen, specially after I spotted another 3 of them in some nearby woodland whilst walking my dogs....but as the temperature dropped to what felt like a very chilly 5c I nearly didn't bother putting the trap out. By 1am I had just 2 moths and it was getting colder so I was almost in shock when I went out to clear away and found 6 moths including 2 Hebrew Character and a Herald!. I also got what I think is a Small Quaker if anyone can confirm this?
The trap was out from 7:40pm to 4am
1 Common Quaker
1 Clouded Drab
2 Hebrew Character
1 Herald
1 Small Quaker?(see 3rd photo above)
