South again for Orchids

Bob surprised me with a trip down south looking for orchids managing eight species along with 4 species of moth and 5 species of butterfly while over head there were at least 40 Red Kite and 6 Buzzard.

Orchids found were Fly, Bee, Pyramidal, Greater Butterfly, Common-spotted and Military Orchid plus Common Twayblade and White Helleborine. The best butterfly was a Green Hairstreak while moths included an usual colour form of Green Carpet.
