Probably not possible to identify the moth with certainty but most likely Adela reaumurella.

iSpot tends not to cope too well if trying to ID two different things (the plant and the moth in this case) so I will not add the ID above.

I agree - Most probably the Longhorn Fairy moth Adela Reaumurella. They appear to be abundant this year.
