Three moths from last night

Got these in my trap last night and I need some help with them.

1. Nutmeg? Can't find a picture with the moth being so dark.

2. Looks like Clouded Drab I think, but it was the size of a Common Quaker and the kidney marks look quite big.

3. My guess is Poplar Grey

Thanks

I think:
#1: Minor agg.- Oligia sp. (strigilis/latruncula)
#2: Northern Drab- Orthosia opima
#3: Sweet Gale Moth- Acronicta euphorbiae

After a second thought, #3 might as well be Poplar Grey, i agree with that.

Aha, not a UK resident! That's why I had some trouble when looking for it in Field Guide to the Moths of GB and Ireland!

Thanks a lot again Svein
