LWT Whisby Nature Park

Whisby Nature Park is managed by Lincolnshire Wildlife Trust on behalf of North Kesteven District Council and Lincolnshire County Council; it is located south-west of Lincoln.

The reserve comprises flooded gravel pits - it was previously a sand and gravel quarry - surrounded by willow and birch scrub. The railway, which cuts through the reserve, is edged by a oak woodland. There are also dry areas of gravel and a sand bank where a colony of Sand Martins nests.

I've only been in May and June with the specific aim of seeing Nightingale and I've not yet been disappointed as there are several pairs of Nightingales and up to 20 singing males. Delightful!

There's a good chance you will see or at least hear a Turtle Dove and a great many other species too.

There are plenty of other species to see and these are listed below.
