Bird's-nest Orchid refound for Wexford

 Bird's-nest Orchid has only ever been reported from Courtown, with the last sighting made in 1943. It was great to find one in the woods at Newtownbarry House, Bunclody. Had a BioBlitz with the Wexford Naturalists' Field Club. 265 species of plant were recorded, nearly all from the same monad.

  1. That's a great find Paul - I searched the woods on the Carlow side of the river in the golf course but didn't find any - a lot of disturbance there...
