A quick trip to the seaside. Parked up by the beach at another place home to Anthony Gormley’s Iron Men and took a stroll north towards Altcar. In 2007 there was a colony of approximately 140 Bee Orchids around the pumping station with many being up to 45cm high. This year it soon became obvious that I should have been there 4 weeks ago.

Due to the number of dodgy looking characters on mountain bikes drinking cider on top of the pumping station I didn’t hang around.

Highlights elsewhere within the dunes included a spectacular display of Tuberous Peas, Chicory and Kidney Vetch
