Covid-19 Update 17th May: Update following the latest lockdown restrictions.
***FIELD MEETINGS*** With the planned relaxation of social-distancing guidelines, we now feel the time is right to restart the walks program. We are liaising with walk leaders and will announce planned events as and when we can. In the meantime, we can announce that the weekly Pentire and Rumps Nature Walks will be starting again next Wednesday.The walks last approximately 4 hoursand will run through August 2021, covering flora and fauna as well as birds. Walks start at 10am and will be led by Jack Humphrey, Bernard Ide, Alan Taylor and Mike Scawen. Meet at Pentire Farm (SW936803). Phone Countrywise on 01208 812423 to check that walk is on.
General Birdwatching: Please see the Government website www.gov.uk/coronavirus for the latest advice and regulations on social distancing and other precautions against the spread of the virus.
Where appropriate, remain safe by avoiding unnecessary contact, mixing and travel. However enjoying fresh air outdoors and our wildlife is an important component in a holistic approach to mental health and wellbeing and we will continue to encourage a greener approach to birding, including local and patch birding as a part of this.
Reserves: All of our reserves are open as usual and we are also able to open our hides on the proviso that people continue to follow the latest Government guidance. We aren’t able to provide hand sanitiser at our hides so encourage you to carry your own where needed and also try to keep end flaps on hides open to promote airflow through them, even when not in use.
