Many thanks to all those who responded to my question. A quick glance at recent ABRs indicates a spread of obs. Apr. to Oct, with great variation between years from time of presence and number of records. So, there is still some hope.
Earlier reports even talk of a small permanent population at BotG (McComas Taylor & COG 1992 and Wilson 1999), and in suburbia "it arrives in April and builds up to a peak in July and then declines through to November" (Veerman 2003).
Probably another species that shows signs of having suffered directly or indirectly from the drought (??).

P.S. I generally share Frank Antram's "bad luck" when visiting BotG. But still great to spend time there.
