The Tip was not very active with a strong west wind. A number of gulls were milling about but I could find nothing unusual.
A quick check of Northwest Beach area revealed a couple of Common Buckeyes, common Checkered-Skipper among others.
I decided to check out Hillman Marsh shorebird cell area. It is certainly a big year for checkered skippers as I had at least 40 just around the cell.
Peck's Skippers were quite common as well (over two dozen). I only saw on Tawny-edged Skipper.
Lots of Common Buckeyes were present as well.
Checkered Skippers are everywhere right now it seems. One was at Stewart Wetland this evening.
