Small Tortoiseshell, Common Darter

Very few butterflies in my garden this year - don't know why particularly, but the crap weather in August co-incided with the main flowering period for the garden buddleia which doesn't help! This is one of two knocking about this morning.

Not long after posting the above, this Common Darter briefly settled on the garden fence. Not a garden tick, but certainly not frequent. Shame it was on the wrong fence with the sun behind it ..
