Woodland in March

Fourteen macro and three micro species last night.  Didn't feel quite as warm as the thermometer said it was and I am not sure that the moths believed it either, we were expecting more.
New for us - Early Grey, Hebrew Character, Grey Shoulder-knot, Early Tooth-striped and Mottled Grey for comparison, the photos were taken from the same distance.
The third micro was Torticodes alternella but only four as the numbers seem to be reducing now, was hoping for the first Diurnea fagella but no show yet.
Names on photos as usual.
