Well that paid off quite nicely, with presumably a male, as it was not too brightly coloured. A male Brimstone showed well too, and we had a fly through Clouded Yellow, which was nice.
Lulworth Skippers, Portland, good idea!!!
I popped into the Obs, to see if anyone had seen any, and where was best place at the moment? I was told that the usual place was still best, by the Pulpit Inn...but was also told by someone in the Obs, they had been over there and not seen any, but had some in the Quarry field. Oh well thats 2 places to try at least. Pulpit first though.....
I parked the car and walked back towards the pub, and along the ridge. I found a very tatty Small Skipper, which had me going for a while. Then one flew along the ridge, but they are so quick and small, it soon disappeared. Didn't take too long though, and i found some more...and they showed well in the end!

Not really a pretty butterfly, as you can see, but a very localised one, so always nice to see, and photograph.
