Highlight here was a FFG Kent dark arches. Looking at the website map and the sightings records it first appears in 2009 (Pam Campbell). The next one, taken from the maps, is 2014, then 2015(2) 2016(3)2017(5) 2018(3).So getting more frequent and being located in increasing numbers of 10K squares.
Apart from the numbers (600+/87 app), this was one of those lovely colourful trappings - lots of bling - it made me wish I had my g'children here. Swallowtails(4) Herald, Elephant hawk(4) Small elephant, Poplar hawk(3) Garden tiger, Ghost(female) Magpie and lots of Emeralds.
One other FFG was Brown tail.
17 - FFY were Garden tiger, Chinese character, Small dusty wave, Swallowtail(4), Broad bordered yellow underwing, Poplar grey, Grey dagger, Herald, Fan-foot, Ghost' Yellow tail, A.forsskelana, Chilo phragmitella, Anania crocealis, Rhodophera formosa, Ostrinia nubialis and Plutella xylostella. With a handful of micros still to resolve.
