I was off to a sprint cycle class this morning and was pleased to find I could get back into it relatively easily. Late morning I headed out to Aylesbeare Common again armed with my book on Orchids and determined to established whether the orchids I found yesterday were Heath Spotted or Common Spotted Orchids or both. I was looking at both the flower shapes and leaves. At first I thought I had it worked out and that the majority were Heath Spotted and then I found some more and wondered if they were the Common Spotted ones. When I caught sight of this very small Lousewort I was happy to switch subject to something I knew what it was. In extras I have put a maybe Heath Spotted orchid.
I have just ordered a new identification book but will go back to look again at the flowers.
