Thanks to SDCC implementation of the NBDC All Ireland Pollinator Plan in Rathcoole Park, near Saggart in Co. Dublin the large unmown meadows in the park were a sea of over 1000 Common Spotted Orchids (Dactylorhiza fuchsii) along with a few Pyramidal Orchid. And invertebrates are benfitting... Meadow Brown, Tortoishell, Painted Lady Butterflies and Burnet moths and a host on other bugs were seen in these areas. The place was just buzzing... and simply stunning.
