birding gossip a few weeks back said that an 'arch' was to be built between the car park and the reserve centre to scan membership cards.
On a visit last weekend it appears a new building / foyer is under construction at the end of the footpath by the RC and in the future visitors will enter through it and show their membership cards. We were checked on Saturday at a temporary booth and Track and Trace details taken.
Access before and after opening hours will still be possible apparently - somehow bypassing the closed foyer with a side gate?
So atm it appears that parking will not be checked and a determined beach visiting family could possibly leave their vehicle in the car park for free , walk back up the entrance track and go up the public footpath to the beach : If word gets out on NorfolkGrockles.com the game will be up!
