A walk over the Sussex Downland today in really cold, overcast conditions produced some wonderful Early Spider Orchids. Possibly due to the recent dry conditions numbers are quite low although there were several only just starting to show.
Early Spider Orchids.
It was then the Green-winged Orchids which were also only just starting to look good, although these too were in quite small numbers. At least the sun had come out by this point resulting in much warmer conditions!!
