a local patch tick for me; thanks to Martin for putting me onto this close scrutiny skipper; close to a very busy road it was very elusive appearing on the flower for a few seconds and then disappearing for about an hour at a time;
I tried to get the distinctive ID features in the photo!

shots from Alkborough -- the Little Egret landed close by and then jumped up before I could check my camera settings --- I was on AE and compensated by about 3 stops from the previous shot but amazingly it has worked well with this white bird and made a good dark backdrop out of a pretty mundane scene --- just shows luck plays a big part in photography; I needed some Shelduck shots so this closish bird was useful
