    Lesser Yellow Underwing I think. They're quite variable though.
    If you can keep your head, while those around you are losing theirs, you may not have grasped the seriousness of the situation.

    @wild edges I’ve googled the Lesser Yellow Underwing caterpillar and it does look very similar to what I’ve got there! Thanks:)

    I seem to be finding loads of them this year.

    @pansyface I’ve already heard back from Steve and he’s also identified it as a Lesser Yellow Underwing Moth :)

    They seem to be thriving at the moment. They quite regularly turn up in the moth trap in double figures.
