Northern Marsh Orchid - Wragg's Quarry

A good showing of orchids again this year in Wragg's Quarry. I have these down as Northern Marsh, a small number have spotted leaves so suspect there is some hybridisation with the Heath Spotted Orchids which occur nearby. The shape of the lip varies quite a bit, the one photo is fairly typical but some have a more extended central lobe.
