Moth ID North East UK

This moth landed on our kitchen door. Habitat is a small surburban garden.

Looking through my guide, the nearest I could come up with was scalloped hazel. Anyone have any thoughts?

Apologies for the poor quality of the pic. It was taken by my daughter on her mobile phone through double glazing.

Thanks for any help.

Yes, looks like Scalloped Hazel, but ID is difficult when looking at the wrong side of a moth!

Thanks, David. I appreciate the difficulty with ID, given how it was photographed.
