JUNE VISIT TO WOODHALL SPA AIRFIELD 22 June 2016

Today the Louth U3A Flora, Fauna and Ornithology Group (which includes LWT members) revisited the Lincolnshire Wildlife Trust's site at Woodhall Spa Airfield to see how the Trust was progressing with the regeneration of the area as a nature reserve. Massive changes in a year and an amazing vision to create an area to commemorate both the Lancaster aircraft and men of the 'Dambusters' 617 Squadron and the men of 627 Squadron who fought so bravely during WWII, as well as to provide a wildlife area for visitors to enjoy into the future.
Kevin James, the Mid-Lincs Warden of the LWT, gave us a wonderful overview of the work that has already been completed and what is planned over the next few years. We all enjoyed it very much and returned home far more knowledgeable than when we had arrived.

One thing that really struck a chord for me was the lone wild red poppy growing at the end of the original runway. How appropriate as a natural sign of remembrance! JW
