View from hide View from hide


We had a fantastic day out at Woodhall Spa airfield in June! Members and their friends met up for a day of bird-watching, pond dipping, minibeasting and plant investigating. We saw a marsh harrier, water scorpions, dragonflies and poppies, to name a few. We even saw the only fling  Lancaster World War Two plane (in the UK) take off from nearby RAF Coningsby when we were actually standing on the old runway where Lancasters took off from during the war! We had a great time!
