A Disrupted trap

I went out to my trap this morning to find it had been collapsed, almost certainly by a local cat, curse it. There were a few interesting (to me) visitors though, including this Canary-shouldered Thorn, vibrating its wings fiercely.

And this tiny Marbled Beauty, so small I had difficulty identifying it at first.
And finally a new micro, Willow Ermine.
I know Ermines can be tricky, but the dusky hue (it's not shadow) and the dots in three clear lines make me pretty sure that this is Willow Ermine. The trap also contained a Painted Lady - of which more later, and a Dark Bush Cricket.
