A tiny moth seen crawling up the window frame in my office
No interactions present.
Don't know what it is, but I want one!
Who says all the cute fluffy things are Dormouse sized!

seems the little fella is out a bit early. the picture in encyclopedia of life does not show colour very well, but www.hantsmoths.org.uk + www.ukmoths.org.uk show it perfect.
Shropshire's micro-moth expert tells me it is only the second record for Shropshire. So I can still contribute useful records while sitting in my office.
excellent, well done. Where theres one, there must be more, so get your camera ready. ;)
You must have a lime tree nearby? Searching the foliage later in the year might be productive as the moth's leaf mines are distinctive and although small are easy to find once you've got your eye in. The windowing on the leaves is also a give away.
