Small Wainscot?

The closest I can get to this rather shaggy moth is a Small Wainscot but it's not well marked and would perhaps be on the earlyish side for that species. Trapped last night in Kincardine (NS98). Forewing length was 12mm. Is there a better identification?

Yes, Small Wainscot. We had one or two in East Lothian last week.

Thanks, Mark. Another new species for the garden list.
