2013 Site 3 Mixed Orchids
« on: July 19, 2013, 04:48:56 PM »
Today's visit to Site 3.

The main meadow was devoid of Dactylorhiza. It's very late so the grass was very long, not even the seedheads were showing. The Twayblades were still evident although in this sunny area most were over.

Two further, fields were checked and sure enough the orchids in these meadows were in flower in the shaded areas.

There are large groups of Twayblades in one particular area, unfortunately because of the characteristics of this particular orchid, a group photo is not particularly feasible.

Plants pictured :-
Gymnadenia conopsea - Fragrant Orchid
Dactylorhiza fuchsii - Common Spotted Orchid

Your Gymnadenia looks mostly like densiflora.

Interesting isn't it. This one area contains what is claimed to be two distinct species yet there aren't seperate populations anywhere around it.
