Southern Marsh Orchid
They are resplendent in a number of different shades.
I do have difficulty with the various species of Burnet Moths, but I think that this is a Narrow-bordered Five-spot Burnet.
I don't know if the moth is a pollinator of the orchids, in many vegetative reproduction is as important as pollination.
It was good to see a few Butterflies around, like this Small Heath.
A Marbled WHite on a Southern Marsh Orchid is another potential pollinator.
Sandwich Bay is famous for the Lizard Orchids, but it is the ones that grow on the lawn of one of the houses that make me really jealous, wouldn't it be great to have wild Orchids growing in your lawn!
At the Restharrow Scrape there is quite a lot of activity of young birds. This Mallard Duckling seems to have lost Mum.
The Lapwing on the small island was fairly laid back and didn't seem to mind to much when the chick wandered off.
This seemed to be the single Lapwing chick, maybe the lack of parental supervision had something to do with the small family size?
