Access is available to the Main Observatory as well as Nelson-Lyle hide with wellies. Lyle, Friends and Reedbed Hides are closed due flooded footpaths. Scooters and wheelchairs are not permitted on the footpaths, so can only get to the main hide at present. Swan feeds and hare walks are running as normal.
