Gordon, thanks a lot! According to the list you suggested and some literature on the local butterflies I found this might be Thymelicus sylvestris.

It's one of the skippers, but I'm not familiar with them in your area. You might want to try Go part way down the very long list to the skippers and start looking for a photo that you think best matches your spotting. Good luck.
