Hi

Looks like Square-spot Rustic
Barred Chestnut
Not Small Clouded Brindle, but what size is it? Flounced Rustic maybe?
Suspect Large Ear, but I need to inspect the genitalia
Probably Small Square Spot

Sorry Mark. I thought I'd put in a paragraph about these.
I see now why the dark one is a Square Spot Rustic, though it is so much darker than the others we have identified.
They all measured 15mm forewing length, except the probable Small Square Spot, at 14mm...
