I found quite alot of Bee Orchids including the variant "Belgarum". Lots of Common Spotted Orchids and Southern Marsh Orchids were also seen with possible hybrids of the two amongst them. A few Early Marsh orchids "incanarta" were still in flower but past their best. Four Pyramidal Orchids were also seen.
