New one for me & need some help in ID please.
Sorry for the quality I don't have a macro lens.
Spotted on the coast path between Penzance & Landsend this weekend past.

Can't really tell from your picture, but doesn't sound like usual habitat. You might find this site useful http://www.butterfly-guide.co.uk/species/fritillary.htm There are other sites to compare the various fritillaries too.
