Large Skipper Near Pond

I visited a nature reserve where these were quite numerous, flying close to or over the water of a large pond. Several were perched on twiggy vegetation overhanging the water.

They were flying around rapidly, which is how they got their name. I didn't see the upper sides of the wings but I suspect this is a female.

No hope of stereos!
