Orchid Safari Part 2

  Tuesday June 21st 
  Wild Orchid Safari Part 2     7pm - 9pm

A guided walk around Grangelands and Pulpit Hill to look for some of our later flowering wild orchids. Meet at the Longdown Hill NT layby
Contact Francis Gomme on 01844 274865 if you need a lift. Non members welcome £3.
Almost impossible to predict which orchids will be found on Tuesday night in what is an extraordinary year for wildlife. Two weeks ago on our first orchid walk we found many species flowering much earlier than usual, others were struggling due to the dry spring while some like the White Helleborine and Fragrant Orchid, seem to be having a bumper year. Join us to discover how they are coping as we move into high summer! .
