Small Copper butterfly (Lycaena phlaeas)
The Small Copper can be seen in a wide variety of habitats but is commonly found on chalk or unimproved grassland, heathland, woodland clearings, waste ground and moorland. The males are territorial, often sitting on a piece of bare ground or a stone where they bask and wait for passing females. Still common and widespread, this butterfly has nevertheless declined in numbers during the 20th century. Its preferred foodplants are common sorrel and sheep's sorrel.
