Taking up on Kent's suggestion to seek out some latter season  skippers, I 
spent an hour Saturday afternoon in search of them at one  site but without 
success.  However, nine species were recorded, some  in goodly numbers.  Cabbage 
White (16), Clouded Sulphur (49), Bronze  Copper* (2) very fresh looking, 
Eastern Tailed-Blue* (4), Summer Azure** (1),  Pearl Crescent* (1), Painted Lady* 
(2), Viceroy* (2), Common Ringlet (42).
* Net/Release, **Net/Release/Photograph.
It was one of those rare occasions to experience  100% netting success but 
alas in attempting to photograph the Painted Lady, the  camera malfunctioned, 
and the lady was not prepared to wait around!
