Holly Blue almost certainly. Still too early for Common Blue I think.
We had Holly Blue today in our garden and another Euxton Garden.

I had a Holly Blue in my garden in Chorley today Monday 22 April. It was actually on a Holly bush so it must have read the book as in springtime females lay their eggs on Holly whereas in autumn they generally lay their eggs on Ivy
