Many thanks

I'd say 1 is probably Celypha Lacunana, 2 Large fruit tree tortrix Archips podana, 3 Double striped pug. Not sure about 4 - seems to have elements of Brown house moth and white-shouldered house moth - hope someone else can do better.

#4 looks like Parsnip Moth (Depressaria radiella) - size would help.

Hi
Many thanks to both of you for your help.
No. 4 moth was approx. 20mm in length if this helps.

That would be about right for Parsnip Moth.
