Willow – may be

I have had a long look at these photos and those from Ophrys at www.ispot.org.uk/node/229731. I’m a long way from certain about an ID but after a lot of thought I am inclined to agree with gramandy.

Grahem/Ray,
Thanks for your comments and advice, having reviewed the ID and revisiting ophrys in hand photos I agree and have amended the ID to Willow Tit. Regards
