Still very early for orchids but we had a picnic at a patch of unimproved grassland and I managed to find, in a sheltered hollow, the smallest Early Purple Orchid I have ever seen.

A slightly larger companion was about a foot away, they were the only two orchids in the whole reserve, at least around the edges were I walked.

Cowslips were common but mostly very stunted, this was again from a sheltered spot.
