Three Lycaenids on the wing

Amazingly Brown Argus, Common Blue and Small Copper were all still on the wing today in a 10mx 10m patch of vegetation at Margam Moors. The Brown Argus (a fresh-looking individual different to that photographed on the 17th) beating the previous latest record by four days, The Common Blue three days later than the previous latest record, but the Small Copper 10 days short of the latest record for that species!

After a quiet 'early butterfly' run this year Barry, you seem to by making up for that nicely with the late records.
