Glow worm sites in and around Lincolnshire

Normally I start my lists with sites reported to Anthony Wootton in the 1970s. But he reported no sites in Lincolnshire at all, so I can only give the sites reported to me, almost all by the Rutland Natural History Society, in recent years. The coordinators for that area are Graham and Linda Worrall of 6 Redland Close, Barrowden, Rutland LE15 8ES, should you wish to liaise with them. If you would like to search for sites nearer to home, all I can say is that disused railways are good hunting grounds, along with any areas which have remained uncultivated for many years. But with its large areas of chalk and limestone geology, in theory there should be more sites in Lincolnshire.
  At the start of the 2005 season, two larvae were seen in Birchwood Nature Park, off the A46 not far from Lincoln. This shows that glow worms can be found even in areas where they were previously unknown. They must have been there for many years as glow worm larvae cannot spread other than on foot, so where there is one site there may be others.
