Moth ID please. West Midlands, UK.

The nearest I can see for an ID is it being an Argent and Sable?

Any help with ID will be appreciated.

The nest box is fixed to a Crab apple tree so removing the box would be a disturbance in itself, I would not wish to attempt moving the box. A local beekeeper seems to be the way to go at present.
