Burnished Brass daytime nectaring

Flying amongst the Common Blues, Small Copper, Gatekeepers etc. in my paddock in the sunshine yesterday I was surprised to see a Burnished Brass nectaring on Red Clover. An Ear moth was also flitting around and a Hummingbird Hawkmoth had to be rescued from my sunroom.
