I had a go at taking a video, to try and show how lovely the orchids are at the moment (I'm not particularly good at videos, as you'll see!)
It was a little bit sad to see how many orchids had been trampled. In places it looked like people had been lying in the grass, squashing lots of orchids, just to get their great photo. That's just wrong! It's easy enough to take photos without stomping all over the orchids if you're careful.
While I was there I also saw my first Marbled White and Large Skipper of the year, as well as three Slowworms and a Roman Snail.
