Thanks for the lift!

The Meadow Brown is one of our most widespread butterflies and may also claim to be the most common butterfly across much of its British & Irish range. A wide range of habitats is used, from downland and grassland, through to urban brownfield sites and coastal dunes. Unlike many other butterflies, the Meadow Brown can be seen on the wing under overcast skies, although it does prefer warm sunny days. Males are more wide-ranging than the females and spend a great deal of their time searching for a mate.
