30 Days Wild 3: Southern Marsh Orchids

30 Days Wild No. 3. Seeking out a Southern Marsh Orchid. We don’t have many of these (unlike the Heath Spotted Orchids that will be coming out soon). They are restricted to the especially wet bits on Popehouse Moor SSSI and you won’t find them up near the lodges.

If you ask me, they are a bit garish.  But the fact that they keep showing up, even in small numbers, means our conservation grazing is working. So finding a few in flower is our reassuring act of wildness for today!
