Sword-leaved Helleborines - about 5-10% in flower yesterday - next weekend perhaps the early peak. If anyone has precise details for confirmed C. x schulzei from last year, I'd be grateful for a PM.

cheers

Not sure if it is of any help but there is a photo of the hybrid from a guided walk at Chappetts yesterday on the Native Orchids Facebook group.

Day out in North Wales

A good day out in North Wales with Ben.

Minera Quarry had at least four Cuckoos calling and flying, also a Peregrine. Lifting a reptile refuge sheet revealed the tiniest Slow Worm I’ve ever seen, not much bigger than a large centipede. Lots of Early Purple Orchid in the limestone grassland and some mystery marsh orchids with the flower just breaking from the rosette, I suspect Early Marsh.

Then Eryrys for Frog Orchid and little else, no ‘longibracteatum’ and no butterflies on the wing.

To Maeshafn and Clive’s wood to see the Pied Flycatchers in the nest boxes he put up last autumn, they must have simply passed through the wood last year, the trees not being old enough to have developed natural nest holes. Also Nuthatch in another box. Well done Clive.

Finally Marford Quarry, again cold and windy but three bigger Slow Worms under the refuges, maybe 15” long.
