Wild Woodbury Orchids

Woodbury common is an area of heathland a few miles east of Exeter, with an ancient hill fort known as Woodbury Castle and stunning views of the sea and abundant wildlife. If you know the right place to look and the right time you may just get lucky and see these!

Wild Orchids – Dactylorhiza Maculata or Dactylorhiza Fuchsii – Can anyone clarify?

This is a scheduled post, see you soon!

  1. They are such special plants. It’s always a pleasure to see them because they are so secretive. Thanks for sharing, Gilly. And I’m looking forward to hearing about your travels!

  2. What a beautiful series of photos of wild orchids. The combination of the five pictures is like a collage, each adding to the beauty in a different way. Very nicely done.

I would love to hear from you . . .
