Sighting for June 23, 2012

John Lampkin

Lily Pond, Harriman St. Park
Rockland County, NY

Weekly survey with Alan Wells, and with help today from Deborah Kral and Maha Katnani.
Regarding Little Wood-Satyrs, Glassberg discusses a typical second lesser emergence in late June following a strong emergence in May followed by a lull. That is exactly what happened here at Lily Pond, with our numbers today slightly less than our mid-May counts of 30+/-. Most individuals were very fresh. Some were very worn, evidently survivors of the first wave.
