Lee Mount 4th September querie !

Any thoughts on this moth from this morning ?

Thought at first it was a Shuttle-shaped Dart with the wings folded though it looked longer and darker but I don't think it's that now and I've not seen either of the other possibilities which could be (Heart and Club or Dark Sword-grass) ??? Wing length similar to L Y Underwing.
Turnip Moth

Think you could be right Andy, not sure as that's what I've been thinking though this was a larger moth than this mornings 15mm and was just about the size of a L Y Underwing. I'm going back to have another look !
