January Bee Orchids

Eighty-six Bee Orchids have already be recorded in the first couple of weeks of January (before they became buried in snow!) by Richard, Chris and Graham.

By searching verges and lawns they were able to identify rosettes emerging in the Biggleswade and Shillington areas, with over 40 identified at one site. So you don't have to wait until they flower in July before starting to record. These images taken in February 2010 show what to look for...
