Shaded Broad-bar Moth
We thought this may be a leek moth - it was hanging round our shallots - but on getting closer it clearly isn't.
Shaded Broad-bar moths Scotopteryx chenopodiata can vary greatly in colour. They're only small and quite insignificant but pretty up close. It feeds on vetch and clover (weeds), so not a problem visitor.
