A poor spring and virtually non-existent summer to date meant that our hunt for frog orchids (pictured emerging) was curtailed. These plants are hard to find at the best of times but take on a pinkish tinge once fully in flower which make them marginally easier to spot. The count will be rescheduled but if the number of common spotted and northern marsh orchids on site are anything to go by it could be a good year!
Moonwort was the next challenge to find in the short turf grassland. A slow start but soon we were off and running, finding a seemingly healthy population of these diminutive and easily overlooked ferns.
Last on the list was the last session of pirri seed removal for the year, concentrating on the plants near Longskelly Point.
