Could this snout be a migrant?

Hi

 

 

I caught this moth in my moth trap last night. It appears to be larger than a beautiful snout and more marked than a snout. Unfortunately it is quite worn, but I wondered if it could be a migrant.

 

 

Regards

    Hi WolvesJeff,

    Looking at these photos I would say that the moth is Snout, they actually can be quite marked up and we had one once that was almost totally black, so variable also.  That said we've had a few migrants this last week with this weather so its good to be vigilant. 

    Last year we had Plumed Fan-foot that my other half potted, and I almost released him before I realized it was indeed something interesting...lol
