Northern Marsh Orchid?

I think...but if anyone knows any different let me know :) Went out for our walk out the moor late, it was pretty grey and not so good light, so not a great picture. Will have to go out and take a better photo through the day when the light is better. I would have probably tried to take a better picture but the midgies were eating me alive!

Anyway, there were 2 of these Orchids at the side of an old peat road with heather growing around them, so looked a bit out of place. It's pretty dry and the peat is cracked. I always thought Orchids grew where there is a lot of water or near beaches etc. But then again, I don't really know a lot about them. Very pretty though :)
