A rare orchid is making a comeback on Portland.

Autumn Lady's Tresses is now flourishing thanks to work by a local conservation group called "Plantlife".

They've been removing another invasive plant that stops the orchid from growing.

Portland's home to some of the UK's rarest wildflowers, lichens and mosses.
