Two Crambids and a mystery Tortrix.

Hoping someone can confirm that the first is Crambus uliginosellus, found during the day at Buxton Heath, Norfolk, on 19.7.'19.
The second came to an MV on 11.8.'19, near Fakenham; not the best of photos I know, but is this Agriphila latistria?
The third came to the MV on the above date but I just can't find it, frustratingly. Its forewing length was 8mm.

Cheers,

Thomas

Not looked at the crambids.

The third looks like the brown form of Agapeta zoegana:-

All the best
