[OGD] Dactylorhiza fuchsii / hidden in a churchyard

"The common spotted orchid - or Dactylorhiza fuchsii - is dwindling in 
Britain as its natural habitats vanish.
... volunteers of St Philip's Church are keen to protect it.

The orchid normally grows on chalky soil and flowers from June to August.
They are taking extra special care as it has bloomed among the many 
wildflowers... at the churchyard
in Birchencliffe.

They have... built a small cage to protect it as the grass is cut."
