Lockdown Day 74 - Remembering Wildflowers near Bamburgh Castle

In a previous blog here I mentioned briefly about orchids around the sand dunes near Bamburgh Castle, Northumberland. Digging through my photos I have found some shots of these, it was amazing how many there were when we visited in July 2013.

We saw Pyramidal and Common Spotted Orchids as well as, I think, Northern Marsh Orchids among many other wild flower species in the dunes as you will see from the photos below it was a truly amazing habitat and the local bees and six-spot burnet moths loved it!
