Two photos from Ann taken yesterday, 19/07/2021 sent in telling us:

This evening’s visit to the Orchid Field, Corfe Mullen yielded a nice (but distant) Small Copper ab. caeruleopunctata (ab. with blue dots) on a ragwort plant in the middle of the field and I also saw this Gatekeeper in the lane near to the field.
