Covid-19 Update
Sadly we have to announce that the reserve and hides will remain closed until 17 May at the earliest.
We know that for many of you, the reserve provides enjoyment and solace through these challenging times, so this decision has not been taken lightly.
We totally understand this is disappointing for some of our visitors, but it is in line with Government guidance.
Throughout the pandemic, we have sought regular clarification from the Government (DEFRA) on what the various guidance means for the different elements of our visitor operations. They have confirmed that hides are to remain closed until 17 May at the earliest. We know Blacktoft is important to many visitors and we hope to be open as soon as we are able to.
All the staff on the reserve are disappointed and saddened that we are not able to welcome you back quite as early as we had hoped.
Thank you to our members and supporters for your continued understanding during this changeable and challenging time.
