Unknown Moth?

Unknown ?moth

Insect on external wall of hide. Quite large possibly 5cm but I didn't measure it. I think it is a moth as antennae aren't clubbed but am not sure due to wing position. I moved on before it moved so not sure what the other side of the wings looked like.

Thanks for the ID! Did there used to be something you could click on ispot to see other photos with the same ID as I can't seem to find it?

Yes there was or is sometimes a carousel of similar sightings but it hasn't been working properly for some time.

Many thanks again - I couldn't understand how I used to be able to see them and couldn't now. At least I know now it isn't some setting I have changed or something. I used the search box and they came up and look the same so I think you are right.
I have just zoomed in and noticed some spider web - I hope he wasn't stuck.
