Orchid walk: on the fly. Thursday 10th June 2021

The "Friends of Wolstonbury", http://www.wolstonbury.com/dates.htm were out in the rain today maintaining many steep flights of steps on Wolstonbury Hill, where, as the Early-purple orchids start to fade so Common-spotted', Twayblades and Butterfly orchids emerge.  And the tiny Fly orchids, above, are now at their peak!  Click on the picture to expand it.  This walk then is "on the fly!"    

A 6Km, moderately tough walk with 250m of ascent and descent with eight stiles, slippery in places when poles are very useful.  It is NOT suitable for inexperienced walkers
