Brian found this Brown Argus in his Harman’s Cross garden on 21/08/2019.  This is not always an easy species to identify and Brian mentioned that at first he thought it was a female Common Blue as there was a blueish tinge to its wings. However after chasing it around the garden he managed to get a photo of the underside which confirmed that it is a Brown Argus.
