Orchids in the North of Skye

I took a couple of folks to inspect some orchids north of Uig on Wednesday.  We counted 180 Dactylorhiza lapponica (Lapland Marsh-orchid) at a  site I found in 2006 and also found a single specimen a little way off which is in a different tetrad.  There were 6 specimens of Dactlyorhiza incarnata ssp coccinea (Early Marsh-orchid) in a coastal location I also first found three years ago.

We looked at various orchids in other locations and a good day was had by all.
