There are up to 4 species of orchid growing at Radipole Lake, and June is without doubt the best month to come and see them. Visitors can expect to see Southern Marsh Orchid in huge numbers, and we have a thriving population of Bee orchid as well. There is also an extremely rare variety of Bee orchid at Radipole, the Brown Bee Orchid, with only 2 known sites in Dorset. This year is the 10th anniversary of the discovery of Brown Bee orchid at Radipole, and we are very pleased to be joined on the walk by Naomi Bailey, who was the original finder of these beautiful plants in 2008. Naomi will be sharing her botanical knowledge as we go round looking for these rare beauties. We may also find Pyramidal Orchid which should be emerging as well.

RSPB Members £6.00, non members £8.00, U16 £4.00. Meet at RSPB Discovery Centre, Swannery Car-park. Booking essential on 01305 778313, email or message us on Facebook.
