About the reserve

Neu Lindsey nature reserve has a wealth of flowers such as bee orchid, horseshoe vetch and chalk milkwort, which complement a display of pyramidal orchids in June and July. An important species, iconic in the area, and has a long association with the reserve is the uncommon great green bush cricket, an indicator of long established hay meadows. The drinker, poplar hawk moth and burnished brass are amongst nearly eighty species of moth recorded here as well as the nationally scare adonis blue butterfly.
