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.

Adam ,
Glad you took the advice .
That Bird's nest Orchid is well on compared to the ones at High Elms , but it does seem more out in the open .
Shame the EPOs had gone over .
