Butterfly and coots

This video is called Small Tortoiseshell Butterfly, Aglais urticae.

This morning, a small tortoiseshell butterfly on the butterfly-bush flowers.

On the coots’ nest, this time not a sleepy young herring gull, like earlier this month. Two adult coots. Do they want to breed for the third time this year?
