This afternoon I spent a relaxing hour or so there and was pleased to see Suffolk's only Frog Orchids are now up. I counted 12 plants but there are no doubt more. As usual both 'red' and 'green' forms were present. Wandering about, most of the Green-winged Orchids are now well past their best but one was enhanced by a Mother Shipton moth which alighted on it briefly! A blue female Common Blue posed nicely for my camera and then I located a single Common Twayblade which I've never seen at the site before. A Yellowhammer sang and as I was leaving a Grey Partridge flew from the roadside.
