What wildlife to see this Month 


There are about 50 species of orchid growing wild in the UK, and June is a good  month to see most species. They generally grow on calcareous soils with an underlying lines of chalk or limestone. Common Spotted or Pyramidal orchids, which are relatively easy to find, are beautiful to see.
