Hawk? Moth

Observed: 21st April 2012 By: Amiguru
Hawkmoth?
Description:

Found resting in this position in my greenhouse about 10 a.m. and has remained so all day. With my limited knowledge, and using the I.D. books I have it seems to be a bit like a hawkmoth of some kind but the wings seem to be too tightly folded. The underside is pinkish. Can anyone suggest what it may be please.

Angle Shades

Many thanks kcf32, I'm happy with that ID. Ironically, the reason I didn't spot it in my book is that they had illustrated how well camouflaged it can be among dead leaves!

Regards.
