Friday 8th May
Taking Greenie's advice from yesterday (not to birdwatch from a bike) I went orchid hunting in the car. One of the rare occasions I seem to have the car nowadays so I went off patch to the nearby North Downs where I hoped for a good number of Orchids.
Part of the area I visited was wooded and the Bluebells were still in bloom, but just on the turn, as were the Early Purple Orchids. Good numbers of Lady Orchids were found along with a single Fly and Birds-nest Orchids.
