Man Orchid, Lincolnshire!

By Davidearlgray @davidearlgray
I checked out a new site last week for me just over the county border into Lincolnshire for Man Orchid (Orchis anthropophora). Parking up on a nearby road verge at Copper Hill LWT, it wasn't long before I saw the target species by the road side verge. Over the next hour I noted at least 25 Man Orchids on the verges and also a new plant for me in the UK in the form of Common Star of Bethlehem (Ornithogalum umbellatum)
Here is the link for this excellent little reserve:
