New Moths in Howdon, Wallsend During September 2016

September only brought 10 new Moths to the Garden although I suppose that from now on I will get less and less as I continue to trap but the expectation still brings a bit of a thrill as I lift the substrate out of the trap and look down trying to recall which furry brown thing is which and when you eventually figure it out you have to write it down eg ana/c is Acleris laterana/comariana (in my world) but if you ever get stuck there is an encyclopedia resident in Tynemouth called Tom
