I made my way back to the path and walked down the hill to Grangelands. I had a look for the tiny musk orchids that grow in one small part of the reserve and found them in bud. They are so small that you could very easily miss them, even if you were looking for them. It won't be long now until these flower.

Further round I found plenty of common spotted orchids starting to flower.
The white helleborines, hiding away in their shady corners, were also flowering.
Finally, we stopped and enjoyed the wonderful views from Grangelands. Even the dog stopped running for a couple of minutes to take a look.
What a brilliant dog walk for day 6 of 30 Days Wild!
