As mentioned previously we had an hour or so sweep netting the garden. The best place seemed to be over the Hawthorn hedge and around the Birch trees. Different species come out at different times- so I went back out at in the evening for another go.

247 Tinea trinotella
Very common- 3 caught in total

 301-8 Parornix sp.
1 caught- can only be determined by a gen. check.

 315 Phyllonorycter harrisella
1 caught on Cotoniaster cornubria.

 391 Cocksfoot Moth Glyphipterix simpliciella
I lost count of how many there were! Very easily overlooked as they live in/on Hawthorn and are just 4mm long. Hence the rubbish photo.

 1174 Epiblema cynosbatella
2 caught at dusk.

 904 Spuleria flavicaput
Another Hawthorn feeder- 1 caught, early afternoon.
