Lesser Swallow Prominent

More rain during the night and just 4 moths in my Fairlight garden trap today- a worn Pug [ignored !], a Common Quaker , a Light Brown Apple moth and this smart Lesser Swallow Prominent. Related to the Great Prominent -pictured yesterday, this is an attractive species I  have caught rather more often than the similar Swallow Prominent. It is a common species, widespread in England and Wales.
