Agonopterix arenella Moth

Found this little moth resting on our wooden compost bin - a very good choice for camouflage!
It is a Agonopterix arenella - I haven't found a common name for it.
The larvae apparently feed on thistle and knapweed so aren't a problem on the allotment (anyway, they're probably tiny)
