Leicestershire Orchids: Greater Butterfly Orchid Again!





On Saturday I nipped up to Clipsham Old Quarries in Rutland to look for Greater Butterfly Orchid.
At the quarry I noted at least 30 odd Greater Butterfly Orchids, 100+ Common Twayblades, and good numbers of Common Spotted Orchids which were coming into flower.
What is interesting about this site is that the GBO's flower in the open on south facing spoil heaps, then the usual dark woodland environment.
