TF1115 : Thurlby Fen Slipe Nature Reserve

taken 11 years ago, near to Baston, Lincolnshire, Great Britain

Thurlby Fen Slipe Nature Reserve
Thurlby Fen Slipe Nature Reserve
Thurlby Fen Slipe Nature Reserve is situated on the north side of the River Glen.
A slipe is the land at the foot of a river bank, and this reserve, which is about 2km long, consists of old flooded borrow-pits with a gravelly bed, associated reedbeds (see image for one of these), scrub and grassland and adjacent hedgerows.
The quality of the water in the pools is a sharp contrast to the muddy swirling water of the River Glen. This reserve is managed by Lincolnshire Wildlife Trust.
