butterfly or day flying moth?

Found resting on a net curtain in a doorway at 8pm in the semi dark, doorway next to sloe hedges and apple trees and grassland. Was not attracted to a light that was on inside near the doorway. Did not fly when moved to a safer place.I've tried to ID it from internet sites but I've had no luck.
