Apologies for being off-line but with the lockdown I was only able to get to the site rarely and we (the Trust & I) decided not to encourage people to break lockdown by showing any photos of the site of the orchids. So, here are a few images that I snapped up there on the first time that I could justify a visit – 22nd April 2020. As you can see, the hybrids were flowering very early – but no Lady Orchid flowering and Monkeys were still in bud.
It has been an excellent year for butterflies and the dry, warm weather brought them out in fantastic numbers. I’ve never seen so many Grizzled Skippers!
