Bird's Wing, and a micro query

A moth I have not seen before was in the garden trap this morning - Bird's Wing.

I think I also had a new micro - is this Assara terebrella?

Finally, can anyone help with the dark tortrix below? The forewing measures just 5mm, so it is quite small. It has got me scratching my head.

  1. I wonder if it is a dark version of Ditula angustiorana?

  2. That was my thought too Peter

  3. Thanks Peter and Adam. I think you are correct, but I'll hang on to it for checking.
