WILTSHIRE WILDLIFE TRUST TO REOPEN BIRD WATCHING HIDES
Update on facilities at reserves
This weekend (18/19 July) the Wiltshire Wildlife Trust will be opening some of the bird hides at Langford lakes (Round Pond, South Shore and East Clyffe), and all of the hides at Lower Moor Farm. While toilets will need to remain closed for a little longer, they are working to reopen these at Lower Moor in the near future with Langford to follow later. Signs and hand sanitiser will be put up on the hides and other key access points on the reserve, and they are asking all visitors to please respect social distancing rules, to wait for people to leave or try another hide if the hide is too full, and we also recommend that people wear face masks while in the hide with others.
