No interactions present.
Yes, round point and more compact than Clay. Also the cross-line at a third making a faint V on each wing.
Although supposed to be a migrant (and yours is worn enough to be), I get fresh ones here regularly ( 2-5/year) and suspect a local breeding population. Maybe they are spreading north to Surrey too.

Thanks for that, not a species I have knowingly encountered before.
I'm not sure how reliable to link between wear and migration is. Most of the wear probably comes from bumping through undergrowth and such like which I'm not sure are any more likely to happen to migrants than to residents.
This specimen has been dissected by Rachel Terry who confirmed the identification above.
