Moth ID, London

I saw this on the 8th February whilst it was still very cold around 3 degrees IIRC resting on a wall during the daytime. I putatively IDed it as a spring usher. Would like to check here whether I was anywhere near correct! Sorry about the awful photos they were taken with a phone camera and were the best managed.

Thank you, I can now happily add it as my first self ID'd moth (that wasn't Tineola bisselliella!). Many thanks.
