Dark Arches

Is anyone else catching large numbers of Dark Arches this year ?
I had 76 in the trap last night. My previous highest count here was 59 on 31/7/2008.

Hi Steve,

Good-ish numbers (10 Dark Arches out of 159 moths total on Sat evening) - but not as high as your count.

We did have 3 Dark Sword-grass and 4 Diamond-back Moths over the weekend, suggesting some migrants were on the move.

Hi Julian

No Dark Sword-grass here yet this year although good numbers of Diamond-back Moths recently, with counts of 28 on 23rd June and 12 on 28th June.
