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.


No lift access to the reserve: Mobility scooters and wheelchairs are unable to access the reserve at present, we are working to resolve this issue as soon as possible. Until the lift is working access is via a flight of 8 steps a landing and then 12 steps. We apologise for any inconvenience caused, access is still possible to the shop and cafe which have fantastic views out over Lady Fen and our bird feeders.
