Two photos from Brian taken in his Harman’s Cross garden sent in to us with the following comments:

Butterfly numbers are now quite low in our garden at Harman’s Cross. I am getting occasional sightings of Common Blue, Brown Argus and Small Copper, plus the usual suspects for this time of year – Speckled Wood, Meadow Brown, Small White and Red Admiral. This Small Copper appeared on 06/09/2021 looking very fresh, but I could not find it in the garden today (8th September). The Brown Argus appeared on 07/09/2021, only to be absent today.  The highlight of the day today however was a male Common Darter dragonfly – not much use for the butterfly website of course, but a joy to see.
