Two photos from Shona sent in telling us:

I had just driven back from Norfolk (where I saw Swallowtails), when I went for a quick walk at Badbury Rings with my daughter this afternoon, 20/06/2021 and was delighted to see my first Small Skipper and my first Dark Green Fritillaries of the year – both of these butterflies are males.
