Local Orchids. Identification request.

I'm trying to pin down the idetification of these orchids all growing in a small area of a local field. One shows a general view of part of the area covered. The soil in the adjacent fields was a clay and it was damp but not marshy. They look like a form of Marsh or Common Spotted (Dacyllorhiza fuchsii or masculata) . They are definitely not Anacamptis pyramidalis.
I may be able to go back and take some better photos with a tripod and remote operation.

Any suggestions welcome
