Dactylorhiza in habitat at Site 5 on June 16th 2015 Part 1 of two. The orchids are a little later this year, the inflorescences of the darker ones are more advanced whilst the paler ones are only just opening their lower flowers.

Ophrys apifera in habitat at Site 5 on June 16th 2015. Early in the season for these orchids, many have not opened their first bud. I will return later to, hopefully, record the larger groups in flower.

Thank you Johnny.

Dactylorhiza at the Pleasley Vale Early Purple site on 17th June 2015. Still early in the season and not a lot of large groups evident. The site needs to be revisited in 10 to 14 days.

Dactylorhiza fuchsii - July 2nd 2015

The Dactylorhiza fuchsii site last visited on June 17th. I have tried a different format this time interspersing the habitat video clips with stills of individual orchids. I think it works but do you? Feedback is appreciated ( be gentle).
The orchids are not as good as last year. I was informed that the grass at the site was cut two months earlier than usual last year. Say no more!

Neottia ovata - Twayblade Country - July 3rd 2015

Neottia ovata, the Twayblade, on a SSSI near Mansfield. I've included both colour forms in the video. There's the green ones with the green stem and the other green ones with a brownish stem.

On the 29th I also went to another site to look for Fragrant Orchids. I didn't find any but I did find a group of Pyramidal Orchids and here they are.
