Following announcements this week from the government regarding the lifting of some of the lockdown restrictions, I wanted to provide you with the following update regarding the reserve.
We ask that you bear with us in these difficult times and check our reserve website, Facebook and Twitter regularly for the latest information, as well as the RSPB Covid-19 updates here.
If you are exercising on the riverwall section of the site or other public rights of way in the wider area, as well as abiding by social distancing measures, we urge you to be alert for nature. Please be extra careful around wildlife - especially on beaches (where birds such as plovers nest), paths (where plants have emerged, and birds may have nested) and open landscapes (ground nesting birds and other wildlife can easily be disturbed by people and dogs off leads).
Thank you. We look forward to being able to welcome you back when it can be done safely and responsibly, for all the people and wildlife concerned.
We spend 90% of net income on conservation, public education and advocacy
