Apologies for the quality of the photo. I know Carpet moths can vary a lot. The closest I can see to this in Townsend and Waring is Chestnut-coloured Carpet, which hasn't been found in Norfolk. My impression was that this specimen was bigger than that species, although it escaped shortly afterwards so I couldn't check size directly against the picture in the book.
