Today, October 1, was a very good butterfly day in Westport. At dawn, there=
were about 800 Monarchs at Gooseberry Island, almost every one roosting on=
the east side in one tree or another near the towers, with as many as 400 =
together in a tree. In the afternoon, also at Gooseberry, Monarchs were mov=
ing south toward the eastern side of the point and grabbing on to Seaside G=
oldenrods. There were almost 900 Monarchs doing this. I suspect most will s=
pend the night so it should be a nice Monarch show tomorrow morning down th=
ere. John Young and I found the morning Monarchs. Monarch total today was a=
pproximately 2150.
Also present in Westport today were Long-tailed Skipper, Cloudless Sulphur,=
and Variegated Fritillary at Horseneck Beach. At Allens Pond Sanctuary, th=
ere were two Cloudless Sulphurs and one Ocola Skipper.
