    I visited the Bull Island 2 days ago (6/7/19) and walked the section from opposite the visitor centre and on down towards the south (Pigeon House). I have never seen so many Pyramidal Orchids (Anacamptis pyramidalis) in one place! Literally thousands of specimens. There were the usual flower colour variations and I even came across the albino form. Common spotted orchids (Dactylhoriza fuchsia) are also out now together with Marsh Helleborines (Epipactis palustris) – just opening really! But the highlight was finding a patch of 16 Bee orchids (Ophrys apifera).Love the Bull Island aka the garden of eden!
