Two photos from Gary sent in telling us:

Had a great day butterfly watching at Badbury Rings today 22/04/2021 with particular highlights being my first Dingy Skippers and Green Hairstreak, both of which I managed to photograph. Many thanks to Mel Bray for suggesting what a good site it is for finding the Dingy Skipper. Didn’t see any Grizzled Skippers but I’m sure I will next time.
