I undertook the Big Butterfly Count at Sutton Hoo over the weekend. You give yourself 15 minutes and chart the maximum number of a species you see at any one time.
The photos immediately above and below show a (male) Gatekeeper, aka the Hedge Brown. This is not a large butterfly. I always look for the two little white spots on the forewing!
The butterfly below, a Small Heath, was not surprisingly very small!
You can see how dry the heathland is at Sutton Hoo at present.
This next butterfly (below) is a slightly ragged male Meadow Brown.
And finally ... this lovely little creature below is (I believe) a Small Skipper.
