Stephen did the new butterfly monitoring walk by the Weymouth Relief road on 14/05/2018 and got these lovely shots of this tiny butterfly.

This species is declining in most areas of the UK, so we are very pleased that it has decided to come to the slopes to the side of the Weymouth relief road, where a habitat friendly to butterflies was deliberately created when the road was built for the 2012 Olympics.
