Found in city, no where near a wood.
No interactions present.
Although very characteristic of woodland rides, Speckled Woods can also be found in garden and park situations, or along hedgerows. A lovely photo.

Dear Martin, we weren't sure so thank you for this info.
I would say that these appear to be getting more common - normally in shady places but certainly not restricted to woods.

We regularly get these in our garden and the nearest suitable wood is half a mile away; however, they are very common in there.
