Spotted burnet?

Noticed two of these in the garden yesterday, google leads me to believe that they are spotted burnets...can't really find a lot of info about how common they are? I absolutely love that nature works so well. I create a lovely garden full of flowers and plants and suddenly, I'm discovering all these fascinating little creatures, feeding the birds, being surprised by the odd frog, and have bumble bees under my deck!

    How lovely - haven't seen any for years!  I once saw  dozens on a large expanse of ragwort on the dunes at Walberswick - never forgotten the sight image
