Totternhoe nature walk

This morning I visited the nature reserves at Totternhoe. My main aim was to look for the Man Orchids and Bee Orchids that I saw there last year. I found a solitary Man Orchid (last year there had also been a group of four nearby) but no Bee Orchids. There were plenty of Common Spotted Orchids and Common Twayblades, plus a couple of Pyramidal Orchids. I also saw lots of Yellow Rattle, and my first Self-heal of the year.

I got a nice photo of a Speckled Wood, but that was the only species of butterfly I saw.  I did see a couple of moths though, Cinnabar and Straw Dot.
