We are pleased to announce that we are able to reopen some of the hides at Frampton Marsh and at Freiston Shore.

At Frampton, the Reedbed Hide will be reopened as from this weekend. The 360 and East Hides remain closed at this time, as the paths to them are too narrow to allow for social distancing.

The hide overlooking the lagoon at Freiston will also be reopening, as will the viewpoint opposite it, overlooking the grassland.

We would ask that if you are going to use the hide, to keep others in mind. In order to provide social distancing some benches will be removed or marked to not be used. Please leave the remaining benches in position. Since there is only a limited seating capacity, please be considerate of others and allow newcomers a chance to use the benches if you have been there a while. The hide doors and windows should be left open, to maintain a good airflow through the hide.

As a reminder, one, accessible, toilet will be open at weekends from 10 am to 4 pm at Frampton. The paths are open, with one section along the top of North Scrape being closed from 4 pm to 9:30 am, to protect the birds breeding in that area. There are currently no refreshments available. At Freiston, all the paths are fully open. Car parking charges do apply at Freiston, and we are asking for a reduced entry fee at Frampton at weekends. Both reserves remain completely free to use for RSPB members.
