early moth

If you have seen a Butterfly or Moth you can't put a name to then post a photo of it here and we'll try and identify it for you.

This chap was on the house wall on the evening of 18th Feb, but I haven't been able to match it so far.
Any help much appreciated

Hi

A week 'early' it seems - it's a March Moth.

Hi Mark,

many thanks for the id. I'm very pleased to know what it is.
I note that my pic doesn't show the distinct overlap of the wings that features in other illustrations of the species.
I caught another last night. It showed much more of an overlap.
regards

Tom
