Three moths

Last night's trapping in the garden produced a new species for Islay, a new species for me, and a species I last caught on exactly the same date two years ago.
The new species for Islay is a tiny (8 mm) micromoth which, unusually, has an English name - the Rhomboid Tortrix. Thanks to Danny Arnold for confirmation.
The new species for me is the Autumnal Rustic, which sadly indicates that summer is now over!
And the anniversary moth is the Pink-barred Sallow.
