A new local site for Early Purple Orchid, 18 May 2020

After a work call to a lady in Diss yesterday I stopped by a Roadside Nature Reserve just outside Burston on the way home. I'd heard from another customer who lives nearby that it had 'orchids' but which species? The mystery was quickly solved  - they are Early Purple Orchids. I counted 13 spikes on the verge but all except 2 were completely gone over. Also there I identified Black Bryony, a common plant but nonetheless a new one for me! There was also plenty of Sulphur Clover yet to come in to flower.
