Wild Orchids in Chilterns

I need help identifying the orchids photographed, One of them I think is a conical, the others I do not know.

Thank you.

    The middle one is not an orchid, it is Selfheal - Prunella Vulgaris.

    Sorry can't help with the rest.

    I think that only the first one is an orchid. The second is Hedge Woundwort (Stachys sylvatica), the third is self heal (Prunella vulgaris), the fourth is Purple toadflax (Linaria purpurea) and the fifth one is a variety of Linaria purpurea that is pink. I believe the orchid is a pyramidal orchid (Anacamptis pyramidalis).

     

    Hope this is useful.
