Two photos of Small Skippers taken by Shona and sent to us with the following comments:

It was fairly cloudy while I was at Hatch Pond LNR on 13/06/2020, then the sun came out and gave the first of these Small Skippers a golden glow. The second photo (who’s watching who?) shows clearly that the butterfly definitely is a Small Skipper as the antennae tips are brown.
