Blooming Bees

Summer orchids now reaching their best:
Now`s the time to get out and check on your local orchids. Common spotted, Chalk Fragrant and Bee orchids are all out at their best.
The Lower Sundon Church burial ground colony of Bee Orchids is doing well again, with i should think around a thousand in full flower. TL047268. Areas of the grassland are protected from the mower to allow a good proportion of the orchids to flower and this works well, thanks to the folks at the Church.
