The Lincolnshire Wolds has one of the most fascinating landscapes in the UK. The most attractive feature is the chalk streams. A large portion of the hills in the area have chalk lying beneath them. When it rains it holds the water, allowing it to slowly drip through fissures. The end result is springs, streams, and blow holes at ground level. These have helped to shape the landscape over the years.
The features are so attractive because the water is crystal clear and typically at a stable temperature. This draws in various types of wildlife and also supports a wonderful ecosystem. Many rare species of plants and animals can be seen all across the area over the course of the year as a result.
Something that visitors who want to see the chalk streams and wildlife need to know is how important the season is. In winter rainfall is typically heavier, allowing the chalk to retain more water and raising the groundwater level. As a result the streams, springs, and blow holes are most visible during this period and spring. When the weather warms up and rain falls less often the water level will drop, causing many of the features to dry up.
With the above in mind spring is generally one of the best times of year to visit Lincolnshire Wolds, especially if you want to see the chalk streams and wildlife they attract. If you leave your visit until summer or early autumn you may miss out.
