Kinver Edge Hill Fort NT – Habitat

Kinver Edge is a remnant of the Mercian forest, although much planting dates from post-1945. There are two Iron Age hillforts on Kinver Edge the larger one Kinver Edge Hillfort, is at the northern end, while the other is at the southern end, on a promontory known as Drakelow Hill.

There were 100’s of Mellinus arvensis digger wasps and it was great to watch them doing what they do, filling their burrows with flies.
