In Dorset hat man eine seltene wilde Spinnen Orchidee gefunden… auf dem Dach eines Klärwerks voller Kackwasser.

orchidThe early spider orchid was found growing on the grass roof at Swanage treatment works in Dorset by ecologists, who had been told by members of the public that another rare orchid had been spotted there last summer.

After going to look for the bee orchid, staff at Wessex Water changed the mowing process on the roof, and discovered the early spider orchid – a smaller and rarer species.

The early spider orchid is protected by law, making it a crime to uproot, cut, sell or destroy it.
