Hi everyone, welcome to this week’s blog - the nature reserves of mid-Lincolnshire.
I’m lucky enough to have Mid Lincs Warden, Kev James as my expert guide. Kev is a tremendous character – imagine if you will a hybrid of Mick Jagger/Keith Richards with a zest for wildlife!
We start the day at Red Hill. The reserve is a grassland habitat featuring a disused quarry and a former barley field. The quarry is well known for its fossil rich Red Chalk. The former barley field which lies to the east has recently been restored to meadowland.
