Grizzlies and a Speckled Yellow

Grizzled Skipper, Pyrgus malvae
Yesterday morning we visited Arundel WWT where we had lunch and I took some videos.  Click to a title view:
In the afternoon I visited Rewell Wood and found 3 fresh Grizzled Skippers and two in one area were continually meeting and fighting. The Wood Spurge was home to dozens of Small Purple and Gold micromoths and Hairy Shieldbugs. Other butterflies seen: Green-veined Whites, Orange-tip, Peacocks, Brimstones, Speckled Wood. I found my second Speckled Yellow moth of the year. On my way home I stopped at Lobbs Wood and found three of the local population of Speckled Woods.
