Last Post!

This is my last post until our nature reserves reopen. Hopefully, it won’t be too long before we are back on track again.

Keep safe!

    “Public access to our nature reserves will continue as usual until further notice with the exception of Lower Smite Farm where we have closed the nature trail. ”

    So why is the marsh closed?

      During the weekend our nature reserves saw unprecedented numbers of visitors. We understand that many people turn to nature to help them at this difficult time but it has become clear from the numbers visiting that it is not possible to maintain social distancing – this is putting staff and public at risk. The health and wellbeing of our staff and visitors is our top priority so, regretfully, we feel that we have no choice but to close our nature reserves and car parks from tomorrow.

      Government guidance is to restrict unnecessary travel and observe social distancing and we appeal to everyone to respect these closures.

      Through Facebook and our other digital channels, we will be doing our best to help you to keep a connection with nature in your own space in the coming days and weeks ahead.

      We hope that you keep safe and well.

      • Thanks Mike – I missed the update!

  2. Thank you! I’ve been following these posts from Texas for years — moments of Zen, as it were, but often hairy — and look forward to years to come. Love to the cows.

    • Thank you very much, Jessie. I appreciate your comment and continued support. Fortunately, the cattle are unaware of Covid-19; they are, though, enjoying the sunshire and the early spring grass at the moment. Stay safe and wash your hands regularly. 🙂

    • Thank you. I am staying well out of the way of people. All I have for company, apart from my lively wife, is the marsh cattle. 🙂

  3. How about reposting from your archives. Your nature posts are part of my support system in these trying times.

    • I am still photographing and recording wildlife interactions during my daily marsh excursions to check the cattle, and I will post these when the situation allows, so I promise that you won’t miss anything in the long run. Stay safe!

  4. Thanks, Sherry. I have had many messages questioning the motivation behind not posting on The Wilden Marsh Blog, Facebook page and Twitter feed for the duration of COVID-19. Advice suggests that this line of action might discourage people from utilising Worcestershire Wildlife Trust nature reserves until the pandemic has subsided and our reserves reopen.

  5. If you don’t mind me saying, I think not posting to stop people wandering on naure reserves that are closed is ludicrous. I’m stuck in my house for I don’t know how long, and your blog posts make this lockdown bearable. I live alongside Widen Marsh and I want to know what is going on there. Please start posting again.

  6. I want to know what is happening at the fox den, please.

  7. I too live close to Wilden Marsh nature reserve and fail to see the logic of not posting. I want to follow the fox cub progress. Please resume posting pleeeese.
