Sighting for July 24, 2019

Steven Rosenthal

Lido Preserve, Lido Beach
Nassau County, NY

2 hour visit, good diversity of species for this site. Went looking for snout but got something better: very early record of Cloudless Sulphur, normally a late summer vagrant here. Had one possible snout sighting, but got distracted by the first of three separate encounters with what I presume was the same Cloudless Sulphur individual. Never could refind the snout, but Cloudless Sulphur was still hanging around the parking area grassland when i left at 1pm.
