A walk at Hardington Moor, West Coker with Anne and John Bebbington

A most enjoyable walk was led this morning by Anne and John Bebbington near West Coker. Not promising weather but the orchids were still delightful, set in a backdrop of Cowslips. This was botany at its best – not just finding and identifying orchids but many other plants that we should know but sadly don’t. Too many to recount (David German has the list for the day), suffice to say that the species count kept rising to the very end. Many thanks to our leaders and organiser. Pictures include Adder’s Tongue Fern, Bugle, Early Purple Orchid and Anne finding something interesting!
