Orchid spotting on the walk home

12 Jun

I discovered these beautiful little flowers in a field on my walk home from work this evening. They were the highlight of a mostly dull walk home, the sun did appear for the last couple of miles but apart from that it was cloudy and grey (but thankfully dry).

Anyone know what type of flowers these are?

Are these common spotted-orchids?

I believe they are common spotted-orchids (Dactylorhiza fuchsii) but would appreciate it if someone could confirm that.
