Easter Wishes

Sunday, April 12th 2020

In line with Government and MOD guidelines, the reserve remains closed until further notice. Thank you for staying at home and continuing to support the reserve via social media. Check out our Facebook page for lots of wildlife banter, quizzes, wordsearches and photographs. There is plenty to keep people busy and engaging with nature is a wonderful distraction from current affairs.

Blackthorn is now in full bloom and the white flowers are a delight to see against the back drop of blue sky. Here is a photograph taken on the green trail close to Risedale Beck.

Chairperson, Lesley Garbutt, has sent a special message today to wish all of our supporters, volunteers and Reserve Managers a Happy Easter and hopes that everyone is well and keeping safe.
