Following the latest government advice we have made the difficult decision to close the reserve completely for the foreseeable future- our entrance gate at the roadside will be locked from 25th March onwards. This is to prioritise the health and welfare of our staff, volunteers and visitors.

These are difficult and unsettling times for all of us but we hope that nature can provide a welcome respite in whichever form and wherever you may encounter it. If you are unable to get out into nature physically, then we will be here providing updates, news, photos, blogs and more, to help you keep connected with nature over the coming weeks.  Remember you can follow us with @RSPBLakenheath on Twitter and Facebook (RSPB Lakenheath Fen) and on our blog:

Our staff and volunteers will be continuing to work tirelessly to save nature on our reserves and through conservation projects and campaigns.  More than ever, your support for nature is vital, and greatly appreciated.

You can find the RSPB’s latest response to coronavirus on our website here. And the latest government information and advice on coronavirus can be found on the Department for Health and Social Care’s website

Most importantly, keep safe and look out for one another.

Take care, The RSPB Lakenheath Fen team.
