The flower shown below was discovered a couple of weeks ago on the wildflower slope.  They were not on our species list and we do not know at what point they arrived in the reserve.  The bee orchid is relatively small (15-20 cm tall) with a rosette of leaves that grow upwards and sheath the stem.  They prefer open well drained grassland and calcareous soil and flower between May and June. The plants are perennial, usually taking several years to flower.  They are characteristically unpredictable and may suddenly appear without warning or disappear from an area where they have been flowering successfully.
We are delighted to have discovered them as they were once considered quite rare.
