    I have been down to craggy bottom for a walk, on the way back i went via
    dingle dell and up to s spinny ,to look at the bee orchids, but horror of
    horrors, they have all gone, and all around where they grew is a circle
    trodden into the under growth, i thought this very strange, what can be going

    Vandalism perhaps? :frown: :mad:

    Protecting our bee orchids in Haverhill June 17, 2005 - seems they are quite scarce (rare?).
