Fen Orchid: a new species for me!

Not far from my house is a terrific little nature reserve that holds a good range of odonata and lepidoptera, but also a rich variety of wild flowers.

A walk around before the Grand Prix produced one - possibly three - new species of orchid as well as a delicate little Catchfly of some sort: help gratefully received!

The definite first was a clump of gorgeous little Fen Orchids: these are only available at a couple of sites in Norfolk. Additionally, I'm pretty sure I photographed a few Pugsley's Marsh Orchids: again help required! Lastly, I found a delicate orchid about 20cm tall: the flowers had just about finished, but it looked like a Helleborine of some sort...
