Still a large number of Red Admirals about, and a few Peacocks. I found this Small Copper on Hartland Moor, near the Sharford Bridge path. A few Speckled Woods there too.

This is yet another late sighting, as Small Coppers are usually in flight from May – early October in the UK from one or two broods.
