Some nice finds

On todays work party we got the slope ready for visitors by setting out the last of the tapes, to protect the Monkey orchids that are just pushing through the grass. The orchid mapping is going quite well, if a little slowly, and we have been finding lots of Monkey orchids in bud so it is looking like they are slowly recovering from the previous few years of bad Spring weather. The rain has certainly helped a lot.

Highlights on the wildlife front today were dozens of Adder’s Tongue fern coming up in the front field and the first male Common Blue flying around on the orchid slope 🙂  Monkey orchids are still in bud.
