We are back to welcome visitors to our RSPB Newport Wetlands reserve!

Our first day back today on Monday 13th July already brought a lot of exciting sightings - despite of some rain - such as marsh harrier, peregrine, lots of waders, hundreds of shelducks and a wide range of bumblebees, dragonflies and butterflies.

We want you to feel welcome and enjoy connecting to nature here in safety. Therefore, some changes have been made to help keep everyone safe, we encourage you to plan your visit around these changes:

Our visitor facilities including visitor centre, shop, cafe, toilets, hides, playground and picnic area remain closed for now.

Please ensure you follow Welsh Government guidance on social distancing of 2m between you and others at all times.

Please follow the guidance on the signage around the reserve and advice from our staff and volunteers.

Dog walking - Please stay on the designated route and keep your dog on a lead at all times, to avoid disturbance to breeding wildlife.

Cycling - Please stay on the designated route, to avoid disturbance to breeding wildlife.

There are no litter or dog waste bins available on site, please help us take care of Newport Wetlands nature reserve by taking your litter home with you.
