Large Brown Butterfly

There were quite a few Meadow Browns in the area, but this looked larger and was flying around an area of grass, rather than on the Knapweed and other meadow flowers.

Senior moment

Sorry, please ignore the Speckled Wood ID, call it a very senior moment. In fact I'm not sure what I was thinking.

Meadow Brown

I think it is a female due to the amount of orange on the outer area of fore wings, and the pale brown colouring ( no black).
