Description:

Unusually managed to get a decent picture without disturbing it. Added a picture from above as it's been suggested that this is a Small or Essex Skipper. Happy to be corrected. Note the shadows on upperside.

Thymelicus sp. not Large Skipper (Ochlodes sylvanus)

actually a female small/essex skipper as no light coloured patches on the wings.

Skipper

Thanks David - I've added a further picture from above if this makes id any easier. I've also put up a picture of what I thought was a Small Skipper from the same yesterday, but the imaage is not as strong, and nobody's commented on that yet.
