Magpie moth

Today, we discovered a Magpie Moth in our garden. Unusual, as I believe they are nocturnal. Interesting for us though, as we have had several of the Magpie Caterpillars on our currant bushes, so it was wonderful to see an adult moth. 
E, as usual spotted that it was a moth, because of the way its wings were flat, at rest. I was looking in the butterfly guide *sigh*
