Following the latest clear instructions from the Government for us all to remain at home apart from a limited number of allowed activities, our visitor centre, hide and car park will remain closed until further notice.

We urge anyone using the country park to follow all government guidelines on coronavirus and social distancing to keep yourself and others safe.  Department for Health and Social Care’s website.

Our efforts will now move to helping the millions of people spending time at home. We are determined to do our bit to try and help connect people with the amazing wildlife to be seen in gardens or from balconies or windows and offer some hope and joy in these difficult times.

Over the coming days and weeks, we will also be helping people to share their wildlife encounters and provide ideas for things they can do for wildlife close to home. Follow our Facebook, Twitter and blog @RSPB Sandwell Valley

Thank you for your support, our work to save nature will continue in these challenging times.
