Caterpillar Query

This one was climbing up the wall of my garage on Sunday afternoon.  It looks as though it might be a butterfly larva rather than a moth one, but I could be wrong, I don't recognise it.  About 3cm long, background colour greenish grey. I would be grateful if anyone can put a name to it.

I did put a trap out on Sunday night but the result was disappointing, only eleven moths turned up, nothing worthy of note in spite of the wind having switched to a southerly direction.

    1. Thanks for that suggestion Sally, I've checked some online images and it looks as though Painted Lady fits the bill.
