Silver studs on Gore Heath, Dorset

The briefest of an afternoon's exploration of the southern slopes of Gore Heath in Dorset (off the B3075) enabled me to connect with silver-studded blue (Plebejus argos) for the first time this summer.

Also noted large skipper (Ochlodes sylvanus), small skipper (Thymelicus sylvestris), small heath (Coenonympha pamphylis), and meadow brown (Maniola jurtina), a pale moth sp. caught my eye, hopefully identified correctly later as a female four-spotted footman (Lithosia quadra).
