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!
