Green Hairstreaks and Grizzled Skippers

Grizzled Skipper, Pyrgus malvae
I did my Mill Hill transect Thursday afternoon, recording 25°C at the bottom of the hill.  I found my first Green Hairstreaks of the year and several  Grizzled Skippers, one of which roosted at 4:30pm. I saw the same moths I reported Tuesday: Violet Cosmet, Straw-barred Pearl, Wavy-barred Sable & Common Purple and Gold plus a Little Roller.
