Can anyone identify this for me please?

I assume it's a native orchid, it's popped up in grass where I volunteer, short grass, poor soil, dry, Hampshire

I've tried to identify but to my eyes there are just too many purple orchids, can any one do better please?




if the leaves have brown/purple spots it is common spotted orchid. Also the purple streaks are also right for it.
they are one of the commonest ones.

thank you, ,the foliage also matches the description so that seems to have nailed it

Still magnificent even if it is called 'common'!
