Friday 12 July - at least partial site closure

Posted on 11 Jul 2019

Thursday 11th’s heavy rain has caused some damage to our site. All of our animals and staff are okay, but we need to focus on making everything safe.


Luckily there has been no additional damage to the site overnight. However, the team (who are doing a sterling job) need to undertake some repairs to damage to paths so for today only, we'll be opening the inner circuit and Hawthorn Wood Hide only (see map). This means there will be no access to the rest of the reserve (Wader Lake, Saline Lagoon, North Wood and Spring Gill) on Friday 12 July.

The whole of site will be open as usual from Saturday 13th.
