Due to heavy rainfall along the catchment of the River Great Ouse, the Ouse Washes are currently acting as a flood water storage area. Access is possible to the main hide and wing hides, all other footpaths and hides are closed due to flooding. Swan feeds and hare walk are still running as normal. The A1101 between Welney village and the Centre is closed, access is still possible from the A10 at Littleport and Downham Market.X
