Dorsal looks a bit bright for that Banstie!

It wouldn't be a silver spotted skipper would it?

I was going by the patterning on the wings. In my book the small skipper seems to be plain. But it certainly wasn't a large butterfly. Male and female difference may be?

Perhaps size comparison then?

Mmm, I'm sorry you said that. I was favouring Large Skipper, but I'm only going by my trusty Collins Gem.
