Small heath butterfly Welbec Hall estate in the UK

I went out cycling on the footpaths through the Welbec estate and I found this butterfly on land around the back of Welbec house, as I came through where the lakes were.  There was also another butterfly that I couldn’t manage to take a picture of.

Small heath butterfly?

Could somebody confirm that this is a Small Heath butterfly or what species it is?
