Orchids 2016

2016 has to be one of the best years for orchids at the Gravel Pits for a very long time.  Quite what the count is is hard to determine since there are that many (see the featured image for just one example).  They are largely on the South Lawn but there are also a few on the North Lawn which is encouraging.  Most look to be Southern Marsh Orchids although some are likely to be hybrids.
