Red Beaks - Pyrorchis nigricans
A very common orchid in sandy heath and around granite outcrops, but usually the only evidence is their large fleshy oval leaves (some with dark flecks, others without). This orchid rarely flowers without the influence of a bushfire, although odd ones will flower in open locations after a hot summer. Light soil disturbance can also induce flowering, so worth keeping a lookout as they are always a joy to see.
Unlike the Rattle Beaks, this orchid is quite noticeable being highlighted by the red flowers and large green leaves. Flowering time is from August to early November.
