Bee Orchids and other flora

Over the weekend I took part in the mini bio-blitz at Ketton Quarry LRWT with the Pork Pie posse, Skev, the Llama and Adrian Russell.
Flora highlights I saw on and around the reserve included up to thirty Bee Orchids,and good numbers of Common Spotted Orchids and Common Twayblade.
Just before getting to Ketton I also checked out the road verges near South Luffenham and found 289 Pyramidal Orchids spikes, a couple of Common Spotted Orchids and two Knapweed Broomrape spikes.
