Kelly's quest to find the Tall Thrift!

On a rainy Monday morning extInked Ambassador, Kelly Parish, accompanied by Gavin Parry and David Penny of Anatomy Projects and their free standing 19th Century Studio Plate Camera set off on a journey to find the Tall Thrift.

Kelly was invited to visit the Moor Closes nature reserve in Ancaster by the wardens at the Lincolnshire Wildlife Trust who manage one of the sites where the tall thrift grows, as this species is only found in two locations in the UK it is considered very precious. Luckily for Kelly the second location is only walking distance from the nature reserve in the village cemetery. Kelly had the opportunity to meet with the warden and find out much more about her species and Gavin and David were on hand to document the days activities and here is a sneak peak of their trip.

More footage of the day, along with a detailed account of her adventure from Kelly will be posted soon.
