Two photos taken on 23/04/2021 by Ann sent in telling us:

I had a great afternoon at Badbury Rings yesterday, and saw a number of both Dingy Skippers and Grizzled Skippers, including one quite a long way from the Rings themselves, on the edge of a track down to the main road.  Quite a few of the other butterflies I saw were refusing to settle though.
