Anyone know what this is
That's a white plume moth, Pterophorus pentadactyla
There are quite a few plume moths in the UK
- http://ukmoths.org.uk/search.php?entry=pterophoridae&thumbnail=true (you need to click 'Next 50' near the top a few times to see them all).
The other two white ones are a bit different to yours
- Pterophorus galactodactyla
- Merrifieldia baliodactylus
...not least because yours is the only white one with five fingers (hence 'pentadactyla').
