Rare Bee Orchid plants discovered in Ely will be given the opportunity to flourish thanks to a new mowing programme.

The regular grass cutters, who maintain public open spaces for East Cambridgeshire District Council, recently found a small colony of Bee Orchids, which they mowed around for protection.

This and other sightings were reported to the Ely Local Group of the Wildlife Trust for Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire and Northamptonshire, who completed a survey of the area, discovering many more plants in the process.
