Red Hill Nature Reserve has a collection of chalk plants including cowslip, field scabious and bee orchid. A precious habitat for many species including grassland butterflies, moths and meadow Pipits.
Red Hill Nature Reserve is also home to Lincolnshire’s Coronation Meadow since 2013. It is one of 60 precious wildflower meadows selected in celebration of the Queen’s 60th Coronation with the initiative to protect the UK’s increasingly endangered wildflower species and meadows as the county has lost 97% of wildflower meadows since the 1930s.
