Large Skipper
   After work i arranged to meet a friend at Barrow Wake, Gloucestershire. To look for Musk Orchid. As i was a bit early, i visited Swifts Hill, on the way. Butterflies and Orchids were in good numbers. Will have to remember this place for next year…..
   I also had a lifer….Dew Moth, there were a fair few flying around!

   Onto Barrow Wake, and we found quite a few Common Twayblades, but no sign of the Musk Orchid. So, i made a phone call to a friend who is right into Orchids. He told me the area in which to look. He was right too! After that we found lots, not just in that area, but everywhere, brilliant!!!
And they are tiny too…………….
