Taking advantage of the beautiful day and turning a blind eye on some home  
chores that called for attention, I spent 4 hours in Bomoseen 6 with the object 
 of 'filling a few gaps'.  Three sites produced the following: cabbage white  
(34), clouded sulphur (101), orange sulphur (7), pink-edged sulphur* (1),  
Eastern tailed-blue (6), Aphrodite fritillary* (10), silver-bordered fritillary  
(1), meadow fritillary (5), pearl crescent (16), American lady (1), common  
ringlet (18) one photographed without the eyespot, common wood-nymph* [yellow  
patch] (2), monarch (2), European skipper (3), tawny-edged skipper  (2).
* missing species netted and photographed.
Birds of interest, red-shouldered hawk calling 'on cue', a male and a  female 
kestrel sitting on twin snags, a couple of turkey vultures  overhead.
