Broad leaved helleborine


Broad leaved Helleborines are just coming into flower at Oxwich. This is an orchid which doesn't look much from a distance but close up has beautiful flowers.

Very nice David. FYI Yellow Bird's-nest seen at the far end of the dunes recently by Dave Green, also worth looking out for.

Just took your lead and went to find them myself. walked past a few before I realised what they were. As you say, they're lovely - like a well kept secret.
