Why is Old Hall Marshes car park now closed at weekends since 1st February 2020.

The simple question is why is RSPB reserve Old Hall Marshes car par now closed at weekends since 1st February 2020?

  • Here is the letter that was going around about this.

    A very disappointing decision by the RSPB.

  • That’s very sad, particularly if local RSPB members who work Monday-Friday and then find the car park closed at weekends, and it often the only time that lots of people have to go birdwatching such as at Old Hall Marshes. It just seems a crazy idea by the RSPB, when more people have Saturday and Sunday not working. I just found out by looking at the list of RSPB reserves as i often do, but not the reason this had happen. I couldn’t see any of the RSPB staff or volunteers had posted anything publicly about this anywhere else on any of the RSPB websites and I couldn't find out why this had happened at Old Hall Marshes even by googling. Anyway thank you for posting why the RSPB have done this.

    Regards,

    Ian.
