Bird's-nest Orchid and Toothwort- Great Shacklow Wood

A good showing of Bird's-nest Orchids at Shacklow Wood, although the flowers are not quite open yet.
As usual there are some flowering spikes of Toothwort in the same area, which clearly like a similar Beech woodland habitat and like the orchid lack any chlorophyll hence the lack of any green colouration.
