Moth trapping at home

I put my moth trap out last night for the first time this year, and was pleasantly surprised at what I caught for the time of year. I had 18 moths of 11 species, which considering the weather we have had recently isn't a bad total. I have been trapping at home since 1996 and the Oak Beauty was only the 3rd record I have had at home. Below is a list of what was recorded. As the year progresses I will just give the highlights of what I record.
 
Agonopterix heracliana 1
Light Brown Apple Moth 1
Common Plume Moth 2
March Moth 1 (male)
Double-striped Pug 1
Oak Beauty 1 (male)
Dotted Border 1
Common Quaker 4
Clouded Drab 1
Hebrew Character 1
Early Grey 4
