New Moths in Howdon, Wallsend During July 2016

July seemed to be fits and starts of lots of moths and then scarcely any.  It was good fun though, although I don't think I would have coped if I had been still working for a living or didn't have the County Recorder, Tom Tams, to assist me in identifying moths that I didn't even know existed the day before.  I have seen about 350 different birds in the last 10 years and can remember their names and what they look like roughly, but then all of a sudden to come across a couple of thousand new moths who seem to have unintelligible latin names and ones who you cant tell apart unless........   It is quite a big change and now that my small brain is full of information accumulated over 65 years of life and I am now trying to prise some more in and my red/green colour blindness along with my lousy eyesight means it should be so easy (NOT).  Well, I love a challenge so here is my List of New Moths for the Garden in July 2016:
