Small White Orchid

Reference: FF80
Location: Little Asby, Cumbria
Gallery: Flowers (mainly Orchids),

Last year I had read a blog which gave directions for Small White Orchids on the relatively small reserve at Little Asby in Cumbria. Given their rarity they were protected from browsing livestock by small cages. Overall it seemed fairly straight forward given that the cages would flag their location. However, it proved much more difficult than I’d hoped as when we arrived there were no cages. After a 2 hour search we were on the point of giving up when a car pulled up and someone got out with a camera and walked purposefully into the reserve. I jogged over to him and sure enough he knew exactly where to find a Small White Orchid. What a relief!
