Thanks so much for your help,

Thanks so much for your help, David. It looks like you're spot-on. I didn't look at the hindwing but the small size and various colour features on the forewings fit. I had been looking at the Pyralids and wondering why nothing seemed to fit!

It is a sneaky macro-moth

being smaller than a lot of micro-moths.
