"Sweaty Sock Orchid" (Bulbophyllum phalaenopsis) flowers for the first in the UK

From the Guardian

The orchid’s natural habitat in western Papua New Guinea, where it grows at altitudes
of around 500 metres, is under threat. “A lot of it is due to population expansion, people
trying to claim land for redevelopment and housing, as well as forestry and crops. But
it’s also because of climate change.

A rather delicate little thing seen in the glasshouses in Cambridge Botanic garden. My recording of the names got lost so no name I'm afraid.

Many thanks to the person who has been putting out food in the top of the hollowed out gate post at Selbrigg Pond.

The woodland birds were having a whale of a time and were very photogenic.

The first part of the twelve month cycle. The female will take about three months to return to a normal weight before the fertilised egg will begin to gestate, allowing the new pup to be
born at the same time next year.
