I've been wandering around Holme Pierrepont for many years and I'm pretty confident that I've got a good eye for what's around both in terms of flora and fauna, however it took a tip-off from one of my son's old school friends (thanks Holly) to put me onto a small patch of Twayblade. Supposedly a pretty common orchid it is rather unobtrusive hence I've missed it for several years. Still a photograph is shown of the flower, one for the connoisseurs I think. Apparently pollinated by solitary wasps!
Common Spotted Orchid Holme Pierrepont.
I do however include a photograph of Common Spotted Orchid. A far prettier flower and reasonably abundant if you know where to look. They're definitely having a good year this year and looking strong and healthy, the cold spring if anything has led to a better display than I've seen for a good few years.
