We spotted this today on the back window of our house in Sale, Greater Manchester. I'm no moth expert at all, but from looking around my closest guess is a green hawk moth. Am I anywhere close?
Not a hawk moth, although I can see why you'd think it might be. I think it's actually a cracking little moth called angle shades (Phlogophora meticulosa), although I've always preferred my initial misreading of the name, angel shades!
Brilliant, Mark, that's definitely the one. Thanks for replying so quickly!
