Hello Wildlife Watch Members
The fascinating thing about Wildlife Watch meetings is that you get to visit places you wouldn't normally consider, and there's nearly always something totally unexpected happens at some point while you're there! For example, at our last meeting we discovered the truly beautiful South Elkington Church and its immense Victorian trees. And just as we opened the door to go inside, a bat unexpected flew out of the rafters above our heads and dashed for cover into a dark corner of the nave. Wow, what a shock!
Our July meeting takes us to yet another interesting place which many of you will not have had an opportunity to explore yet - Red Hill Nature Reserve, a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) owned by the Lincolnshire Wildlife Trust and not far from Louth. You will be able to investigate Coronation Meadow with its abundance of colourful wild flowers, insects and butterflies. Then on the other side of the valley, the disused quarry with its distinctive red chalk and chalk plants, including pyramidal and bee orchids. You might even see a common lizard or a grass snake if you look carefully!
Our next meeting is: ‘Magnificent Meadows.'
Date: Sunday 24th JulTime: 2pm
Place: Red Hill SSSI Nature Reserve. Full directions and parking instructions will be sent with your booking confirmation
