Description:

A flash of orange as they fly swifty past but never settle with their wings open. Underside forewing orage with a promient black spot; hind wing greyish brown, darker patch towards body with defined edge. Perhaps we should have an informal competition for a photo of one in the field showing the upper side of the wings as it takes off!
