Ann sent us these two photos telling us:

Here’s a couple of photos I took at the Orchid Field in Corfe Mullen today, 31/08/2020.  I didn’t see any Small Coppers today, and there are fewer Meadow Browns each day.  Then, just as I was leaving, a beautiful Common Blue landed nearby and made my day.  Lots of dragonflies over the meadow yesterday and today, but I’m not sure what they are catching – they didn’t seem to be after the few butterflies which were about.
