Silver-spotted Skipper Hesperia comma

Brown Hairstreak Thecla betulae

Silver-spotted Skipper Butterfly The rare silver-spotted skipper in Britain is confined to chalk downland in southern England. It is in steep decline in other European countries.
Brown Hairstreak Butterfly The brown hairstreak butterfly is in decline in its remaining areas of Britain (and Europe) as hedgerows are cut back or removed, destroying its eggs.
With many thanks to Tony Clancy for both the above photographs of increasingly rare butterflies.
