Description:

Small upright plant, triangular flower-head rising above the fairly sparse grass: very pale pink flowers, with the petals showing purple streaks and spots.
Leaves very typical and easy to ID, having brown streaks/spots, not circular (as in Heath Spotted-Orchid) but squashed laterally across the width of the leaf.
