Default A lifer but not a bird

We had a day walking round samphire hoe near Dover, it is a man made island made from all the dug out marle from the channel tunnel, we had wheatear, stonechats, whinchats, pr raven, 5 black redstarts, but a butterfly we had never seen, it was bright orange on top with a lovely yellow underneath, after a go on Google found it to be a clouded yellow.

Only ever seen one in Spain; beautiful aren't they?

Sounds like quite a day on the birding front too with some nice species seen.
