Can anyone identify this British moth for me?

I've photographed a day flying moth, feeding on field scabious, common knapweed and creeping thistle, nr Walkington in East Yorks today. It was locally common. I've attached some of the photos.

http://islaynaturalhistory.blogspot.co.uk/2010/08/macro-moths-and-micro-moths.html has a photo posted in August 2010 of the what looks to me like the same moth species. It's been identified on the link as Dark Fruit-tree Tortrix (Pandemis heparana) . Unfortunately, when I checked elsewhere online, this name is linked to a completely different moth. Help please!
