Bee Orchids in Leicester...

Checked out one of my regular spots for Bee Orchids a couple of days ago and I found at least 22 spikes in the surrounding grassland. This is the most I've ever seen at this site!

Melody Gardot - Love Me Like a River Does

The wildlife of Montenegro part 1.

Well i've just returned from a week's trip in Montenegro looking at the wildlife in this interesting country. Highlights on the trip included WP ticks in the form of Rock PartridgeAlpine Chough, Olivaceous Warbler, Calandra Lark, Black-eared Wheatear, Pygmy Cormorant, and Greater Flamingo.
We also saw loads of Orchids, Dragonflies, and Reptiles, which will probably take a couple of weeks to ID due to the many species we saw!
Over the next week I will add a good number of photos of the trip!

Some orchids...

Here is a few shots of the orchids I found a couple of days ago in Vc 55.
Also I won't be giving out information on the location of the orchids this year, unless I know you personally because of the number of orchids being dug up by orchid thiefs over the last year!
