Reclaimed by nature

Inspired by the ’30 days wild’ campaign run by the Wildlife Trusts every June, I visited my local nature reserve a couple of weeks ago on a lovely sunny morning and these mixed media pieces are the result.

The reserve is Ketton Quarry Nature Reserve, which is run by Leicestershire and Rutland Wildlife Trust. As the name suggests, the reserve is what was originally a working limestone quarry and I found it absolutely fascinating.  Some of the original stones remain and these are very much being colonised by nature.  The place was a quiet oasis of wildflowers and butterflies.  I’ll definitely be visiting again.  If you are interested in checking it out for yourself, here’s a link http://www.lrwt.org.uk/nature-reserves/ketton-quarry/
