Large Moth for ID Please

A large moth has been on the same spot on my wall all day and is still there at 20.00 hrs.

Thanks
Roy

I'm thinking Red Underwing but hopefully somebody better will confirm it.

Was it attracted to an outdoor light?
Unless disturbed, most moths will stay in the same spot until dusk, when they fly off. The problem occurs if the light comes on again as it confuses the normal roost/flight cycle.

Thanks for looking, It was not on the wall at 6am but was there at 8am.
So was not attracted by any light source.

Thanks again
