A Prominent Night

 A small actinic trap was left out last night and this morning the first moth to greet me was this stunning August Thorn, in characteristic pose on the wall above the trap:

Otherwise it was Prominents that stole the show, with Iron, Pebble, Lesser Swallow, Swallow, and Coxcomb all on the adjoining wall, none of them had entered the trap.  Also worthy of mention, a FFY Copper Underwing (ag): 

No doubt the Prominents, aristocrats that they are, stayed outside to avoid the rabble of 40-odd Large Yellow Blunderwings inside it.
