I am assuming that this is a moth, from the rest position of the wings. It first caught my attention, when I noticed it flying around the car in the picture. I first thought it was a large totoiseshell or something similar because of the bright red and brown colouring when flying. I spotted it at about midday in a built up area, but very close to the railway. (There are green spaces not too far away.)
