A mouse or a moth?!

We found this moth in the garden today, and it’s very strange and very cute. Looks like a cross between a mouse and a moth – so furry and cuddly-looking! I’m not sure he’d actually appreciate being cuddled, although he did very kindly let me take a few photos … I’m not sure what he is yet – best guess so far is a Vapourer Moth, but I’m not 100% sure.

Updated: It turns out that he is a Drinker Moth
