RT72 Woodland Twp.
Burlington County, NJ

Obs. made between 10:30 & 12:20, mostly sunny 72-82 , and SW9-10. A much more productive visit compared to ten days ago. A mix of fresh and well worn Hessel's. White M had seen better days. Only the 2nd time that I have seen Juniper Hairstreak here. There are some E.Red Cedars here along with the A.White Cedars.

[As usual, spring brood of white-M has been hard to find. This is only our second report of the species this year. jc]
