Nature Reserve Access Update

The majority of our nature reserves remain open with free access and we are delighted that support from our members enables us to offer this.

Please be aware that due to recent quieter conditions, birds will be nesting in places more prone to disturbance than usual and so will be at risk. To ensure nature is still there for us in the future as well as right now please keep dogs on leads, follow our Reserve Access Guidelines and the Countryside Code and we respectfully ask that you don't visit a reserve if it is not possible to practise social distancing there without going off the paths. 

Thank you for your patience as we all adjust to the situation. We have a reduced work force at present and the on-going restrictions mean we are not yet able to welcome back many of our volunteers, so our capacity to monitor sites and manage facilities is limited. We do expect increased visitor numbers at many sites now though and so we may need to close areas off quickly if we think there is an unmanageable risk to safety or wildlife. Please check individual reserve pages for updates. We are grateful for your understanding.

A vast fenland landscape between Peterborough and Huntingdon currently benefiting from one of the largest restoration projects of its type in Europe. Already home to two National Nature Reserves, protected for their unique habitat and the varied wildlife they support, the landscape is being restored and transformed for the benefit both of wildlife and of people.
