There are a few Narrow Lipped Helleborines currently flowering in Buckholt Woods near Cranham . I managed to visit one site near to the road that cuts through the woods from Birdlip to the A46 . They were under the trees, the light was poor and there was a nifty breeze so I had to use a flash to get any useable pictures . There were only two plants at this location but there are at least a few more in a clearing deeper in the woods however I didn’t have time to check them on this occasion. ( 14th August ) . I have posted some higher resolution pictures at my blog¬†http://longstoned.blogspot.co.uk/¬†where there are also photos of my Orchid finds from earlier in the year .
