Eccleston Mere

I found a couple of Broad-leaved Helleborines growing at the side of the mere this evening. The flowers were long over and the plants were in seed. I don't know how I've missed them previously, they're right at the side of the footpath and grow to a height of about 45cm, and very distinctive. The only other place I've seen this orchid in St Helens is in woodland at Prescot Reservoirs.

Still very quiet for birds, one adult Mute Swan, Kingfisher and Buzzard were the highlights.

How did I miss you?
