Modest movement of Red Admirals on the beach today. Most of them were enjoying nectar from non-native privet hedges. This site formerly had nice numbers of butterfly bushes which were favored nectar sources for many species of butterflies. These all appear to have been physically removed as part of the current non-native hysteria.

Convenience store/bank wall south of Northeast
Cecil County, MD

While checking for moths Saturday morning on the walls of a convenience store/bank (surrounded on nearly all sides by forest),
I found a Banded Hairstreak lying on its side on the concrete just in front of the bank. I touched it to see if it was dead or alive; it immediately ‘resurrected’, and flew away.

The following morning (Sunday) - about 8 a.m. — I observed a Banded Hairstreak perched vertically on the bank wall, alongside the moths.

Several hrs. in early afternoon, not visiting all areas of large park. Sun with temp’s in low 80’s. An Azure was observed laying eggs on Cimicifuga racemosa, host plant to Appalachian Azure. Silvery Checkerspots seemingly doing well this year. Satyrium hairstreaks just starting up; skippers mostly not out here, or perhaps scarce. Dogbanes in bloom, Milkweeds not just yet. Orange Sulphur & Red Admiral were added later just outside the park.
