Michael found these lovely Southern Marsh Orchids (Dactylorhiza praetermissa) today at Coalgate Road in Soyland.


  1. Should read Coalgate Rd Soyland area

  2. Beautiful pictures Alison. We have quite few at CB

  3. Hi Bruce,

    They are Michael's lovely pictures, I have just uploaded them for him. I did see lots of orchids at Cromwell Bottom yesterday - about five hundred of them Graham estimated in the meadow and dotted about around the reserve. It is a good year so far for everything :)
