An Essex Skipper Thymelicus lineola, taken this morning at Twywell, in the very enjoyable company of Derek (DerekL)Grin

This will shake the local recordersWink

He was over in Tomcat country for the Marbled WhitesSmile

The points made by Ade & Matt on yesterday's upload, were taken on board guysWink
I discovered this morning what the problem was, apart from my eyes of courseBlush

Many thanks to Annette (annettep38), for her generous user award given to yesterday's upload and also to Mya (Myathebirdwatcher999), for her one, given to HTC No 3

I will endeavour to catch up with things when I can - several important items on the agenda to attend to, at the moment

As suggested by Matt, this could well be an Essex Skipper - a head on shot I took, clearly shows the black undersides to the tips of the antennae
Confirmed by Matt and that is good enough for meGrin
