I visited a handful of sites in the NC Sandhills Game Lands, Richmond
County, for about 4 hours on June 9th primarily surveying Sourwoods in
streamhead margins. The weather held up with a mix of sun and clouds and
temps around 90 degrees with a brief period of overcast and very light rain.



Many of my "go to" puddling sites continue to produce little or nothing.
Much of the Sourwood is still in bud, not quite blooming, but an area of
excellent Sourwood produced no butterflies of interest so in that case good
plants made no difference.



I did find my first Red-banded Hairstreak of 2020, a fresh one, nectaring
on Sourwood. I photographed a Banded Hairstreak on an Inkberry Holly in
short but pretty dense streamhead vegetation, not a place I expected to see
the species.



My meagre list is below.
