Broomrapes and orchids - Maryport harbour

What a beautiful day. Squeezed a quick trip out to Maryport Harbour SSSI before the Wimbledon final - both fabulous!
Common broomrape and the far less common, purple or yarrow broomrape.

Pyramidal orchid - there were hundreds - quite literally; slightly gone - over
 northern marsh orchid; common-spotted orchid. 

Burnet moths were flitting everywhere; bloody crane's-bill; flowery grassland SSSI at Maryport harbour. 

...and of course Rocky!
