This looks like an Argent and Sable Moth - very distinctive colours and markings.

Thank you for comments, and thank you Karen for ' Argent or Sable moth '. I should look these things up but I have come to rely on
well informed epzers who are so helpful. I'm not much use for ident. If someone should upload a Rhombic antenna, then I could be
helpful TG

Thanks Cliff. The moth was feeding on the tiny red buds of a low bush holly. Must have been very good nectar. There were dozens of bees and bumble bees attracted to those pea sized red blooms. I did see bees intentionally buzz the moth but it only moved a little. TG
