Kevin sent in this photo he took on 18/07/2021 telling us:

This pristine Silver-washed Fritillary appeared in my garden in Conygar near Broadmayne this morning, and is vigorously patrolling the bounds, pursuing other butterflies. The only previous specimens that I have seen in the garden have been very faded and bedraggled towards the end of summer.
