Southern Marsh Orchids

Saturday 1 August 2015

Hi - I am (hopefully) moving from Cardiff to Rhoose Point in the near future, so I will be trying to get to know the wildlife of the coast over the next few years. I'm a birder really, but I am going to try and learn more about the flora. I start at a very low every visit I will try to identify a couple of species. Today this one at Aberthaw I was confident was orpine. Then I was convinced it was marjoram. Now I really don't know so any comments welcome. Best bird today was a lone whimbrel, although I also counted 47 Canada Geese flying over in a minute.

  1. Hello Dave. It looks like Hemp Agrimony (Eupatorium cannabinum) to me.
