Help with ID please

One of my Dancersend volunteers found this moth on the wall under her doorstep in Tring yesterday. This is the best shot she has. She thought it was between 3 and 4 cm long. It's an unfamiliar angle, and too early, but all I can think of is the pale form of Poplar Hawkmoth. Any other thoughts?

  1. A freshly emerged Angle Shades, Mick.

  2. It is an Angle Shades, Mick. They can appear at almost any time of year and this one looks as though it has been photographed immediately after emergence and is still drying its wings.

    1. Thanks Dave and Dave. Not an angle I'm familiar with...but I can see it now!
