Small/ Essex skipper

This is fascinating! Thanks for your comments and guidance with this. Yes, I see what you mean about the antennae. Unfortunately, this is the only angle I managed to get of the butterfly... When the photo's enlarged, it looks like there's a mix of black and orange on the antennae - but - yes, the black does seem to predominate which would suggest an Essex...

All new knowledge to take with me out into the field - thank you!
