Join botanist and orchid-expert, Leif Bersweden, for a virtual tour of some of the dunes' most vibrant floral inhabitants.

From insect-tricking bee orchids which tempt male bees into fertilising them by resembling a female, to the rare dune-specialist fen orchid which has been brought back from the brink of extinction in South Wales, this talk promises to be fascinating.
