Our fourth and final Lockdown 2 update from Sculthorpe Moor brings news of reopening, reserve expansion progress, and a little reminder of our Christmas gift suggestions!

It's wellie weather at Sculthorpe!

Tomorrow we reopen from 8am (Thursday 3/12/20) to the public and we can’t wait to welcome you back! An exciting change to your Sculthorpe visit will be that the new entry walkway will be opening too! You'll be able to see the hard work of staff and volunteers for yourself as you walk past our in progress wildlife pond and Dragonfly Hide!

This week on the reserve construction has been speedy on the new bridge and walkway near the Frank Jarvis Hide. Those visiting us in December will be able to see the great work for themselves from the existing boardwalks. Whilst work is in progress the Frank Jarvis Hide will remain closed to the public, but all other hides will be open (with Covid safe rules in place!)

See the progress when you next visit Sculthorpe!

An impressive production line of keen volunteers have been creating the natural fence near the new wildlife pond. This time next week we are confident that the new ‘fedge’ will be in place.

Lastly! We have been posting about our Christmas gifts and Adopt a Box membership on our social media this week. A full guide of gifts and goodies can be seen here - A Hawk and Owl Trust gift is a great way to give something special and help raise funds for a good cause at Christmas.
