A 4am start and a considerable hike into deepest Dartmoor felt like a complete gamble, but I somehow managed to locate eight Bog Orchids in a remote mire. I didn't see another soul until my return as I approached where I'd parked, in Belstone Village, on the northern edge of Dartmoor.
Heath Spotted Orchid.
Silver-striped Marble Celypha rivulana.
Think these are Belted Galloways on Taw Plain.
