This is a subject that has long fascinated both me and Lin, and we had a chance to chat about it last week when I visited Three Hagges Wood Meadow, an ambitious habitat creation project to turn a former barley field into a wood meadow of the kind still found in Estonia. Lin's vision is already becoming a reality, with 700+ invertebrate taxa recorded so far on-site.
I'm hoping to feature my interview with Lin on these pages next week, complete with images from my visit to the fabulous wood-meadow, but meanwhile you can enjoy her first beautifully-written but not-so-innocent post about orchids here.
