The Native Orchids of Sussex, Surrey, Kent and Sutherland

Our native orchids are exquisitely beautiful and extremely variable, growing in habitats as diverse as deep woodland shade, chalk downland, waste tips and disused quarries, to sphagnum bogs and wind-swept hillsides in Scotland.

This talk details how the flowers of the rare Early-spider Orchid in Sussex (and other species) rotate as they grow.  More species are shown than “The Natural Year in Focus” talks,.  Twenty three species of orchids are shown in their natural settings and in close-up.  The talk lasts 50 minutes.
