The Dorset Early Spider Orchid are blooming

A big thank you to our Dorset volunteers Izzy and Stephanie for searching the Purbeck cliffs near Dancing Ledge and spotting the first native British orchids flowers of 2022 – Ophrys sphegodes or The Early Spider Orchid.

If you are heading that way, the Early Spiders will be in flower for about 3 weeks – and keep an eye out for Early Purples and Green Winged Orchids that are never far behind.
