We're coming up to the time of year when springline mires come into their own.  They're wet, treacherous and rather drab through the cold months but by June they are covered in little gems amongst the tussocks - sundews, butterworts, bogbean, and orchids like heath spotted and lesser butterfly orchid.  If you have some springline mire, tell us what flowers you've got on yours this summer - or if you're not sure, just post a picture for others to identify.
