One for our resident experts methinks.
The wing colouration could point to the Essex, but I am at work, so haven't anything to refer to

A cracking close up of what I think is a large skipper. Small skippers are usually on the wing in July and August, I reckon we may be a tad early for these. Essex Skippers have black tips to their antennae, this is what distinguishes them from the small skipper. If you want absolute confirmation I'd either pm a butterfly expert like epzer Mattberry or visit UK Butterflies website. You could post the image in their identification forum, the members on their are usually really helpful, Ed
