Two more photos sent to us by Ann with the following observations:

a couple of photos of a Small Copper in the Orchid Field at Corfe Mullen yesterday, 22/08/2020 with the aberration of some small blue dots on the hindwings.  Definitely looking more Autumnal there, with just this one Small Copper and a few Meadow Browns about.

Editor’s Note: This is probably a Small Copper ab.caeruleopunctata
