    Thanks Toby. It'll be waiting for another year anyway as I had to cancel the trip.

    I'm thinking of visiting Warburg Reserve in the next few days. Are the narrow-lipped orchids - and the other 'specials' especially yellow birdsnest - easy to find? Regards Steve

    It looks like I, and a lot of other people, am likely to be in west Sussex tomorrow. If anyone can let me know whereabouts the musk orchids are at Noar Hill - or any other sites not too far from Church Norton - I'd be grateful. Thanks

    They were very fresh and some weren't fully out yet.

    Back from my trip. We were shown the coral roots by Neil Forbes, the warden, to whom I am extremely grateful. I have very little doubt that without him doing doing this would have had no realistic chance of finding them.

    The warden has got back as has been extremely helpful. Apparently not many are in flower at the moment - so extremely hard to find or you own - but there are some good specimens.

    Long way for a plant dip. I've tried emailing the warden but I haven't had a response yet. I am told that they have been very helpful in the past.

    Thanks for the gen. Just chatted to a friend who confirmed that they can be tricky. The guided walk is an idea although the idea was for a nice relaxing weekend to escape life's stresses so rather keen to avoid having to leave Ipswich around 4am.

    Does anyone know if the coralroots are out yet? I thinking of going in about a week. I presume with a population of c.3000, they are pretty easy to find at Sanscale Hawes.
