Old Hunstanton flowers

After Ringstead Downs I went to see the flowers in the dune slack at Old Hunstanton. While I was looking at the plants a Skylark sang me its melodious song.

As Robert said in a previous blog, the flowers are fantastic. The Yellow-rattle has nearly finished flowering and some of the orchids are going-over but it's still a great floral spectacle. Here's just a small selection of photos.
