Hi and welcome to everyone joining this group!

If anyone has any butterfly photos of unknown species then please feel free to upload them here and I and others will try and help out with the ID.

Kind regards
Matt

Okay. Here's the first butterfly that needs identifying!! Smile

I took this yesterday, I think it's a Small Heath. This is the first time I've seen one of these on the farm!
