three iris on Oak sap

Michael Reed sent me this photo from Rushbeds Wood [a Bucks BBOWT reserve] yesterday, August 1st. At one point, he saw 4 iris, 2 Commas, and 2 Red Admirals feeding here.
Question: am I likely to see this if I go there today, or does the sap run dry up quickly, and do the butterflies become sated with this rich diet?
