Creeping Ladies Tresses OMFL! 30th July 2009.

Views of the Creeping-Ladies Tresses and sleeping Spoonbills.
As I had the day off from work I spent the day in Norfolk with Dave Mack, looking at a Pacific Golden Plover at Breydon Water next to Great Yarmouth. Seeing thirteen sleeping Spoonbills, a probable "Baltic Gull", and a free pasty at Cley NWT, and finally finding some Creeping Ladies Tresses in Holkham Woods.
Not far from the nudist beach at Holkham we found at least eight flowering spikes of these small orchids and about ten rosettes under the pines.
So a new orchid for my British list and just another 15 species until I've seen all the British Orchids!
