Silver-studded Blue at Penhale, Cornwall

I visited Penhale sands last night, taking advantage of the stunning weather we are having at the moment.  Silver-studded Blue is by far the commonest butterfly here.  There must be several hundred.  I estimate about a quarter of them were females.  In addition, I saw seven Ringlets, approx. 75 Small Skippers, 50 Meadow Brown, one Small Tortoiseshell, two Small Heath and 20 Common Blue.  But still no sightings of Dark Green Fritillary.
