Old Sulehay, Northamptonshire, is a great place: nice woodland (and even a bit of water) combined with the closely-cropped cover of a former limestone quarry. It is therefore an ideal reserve to visit if all you want is your car broken into and a painful insurance claim. Still, all credit to the dedicated Brian 'The Natural' Stone, he bounces back well, and with car mended (with only a nasty paint scratch to show for his trouble), he kindly offered to take me back to the scene of the crime to look for whatever yesterday lunchtime (12.5.05). The best on offer at this time are the scarcer, moth-like skippers: Dingy Skipper and the tiny Grizzled Skipper.
Brian got better photos than me (respect due), and if you click on his The Natural Stone link (on the right) you can see for yourself (his photos are even clickable to get bigger versions). However, this is what I came up with:
