Ringlet

It could be a Ringlet but I cannot be sure from the images.

Hi Chris, Sorry for the

Hi Chris,

Sorry for the delayed reply. Have been adventuring all over the country of late! It doesn't at first look like a Ringlet but I will have a look at some more photographs. He/she was all apparently very dark brown on the outside with just the white border, much the same as on the inside. There may have been distinctive marks but I couldn't get any closer - flighty! Thanks anyway for taking the time to reply!

UPDATE: I have had a look at photographs of the male and it is, indeed, a ringlet. Thanks very much. Pootl

Ringlet

Yup, ringlet. Chimney sweepers are pretty much black. Tiz too broon.
