Silver Washed Fritillary.Site tick.

 It was a real shock when I went looking for Scarce Tortoiseshells on the land behind my house and instead found a very worn, probably female Silver-Washed Fritillary.
It seemed to be missing most of its hind wings, but there was just enough to make a positive id and discount Dark Green Frit. The image below was helpful.
 Not a pretty site , but I bet she was a beauty in her prime!
After spending time on Buddleia and Bramble she relocated to Dave Wrights garden and some Wild Hemp Agrimony.
