RSPB Haweswater Coronavirus Update

Following the latest government advice we are taking action where possible to prioritise the health and welfare of our staff, volunteers and visitors.

These are difficult and unsettling times for all of us but we hope that nature can provide a welcome respite in whichever form and wherever you may encounter it. We want to do everything we can to help people and our local community safely experience nature at this time. As Haweswater is an open site, you are still able and welcome to explore the reserve on the open fells, valleys and woodlands at no cost.

We hope that visitors will continue to enjoy our amazing reserve and the incredible wildlife it has to offer while observing physical distancing measures.

If you are unable to get out into nature physically, then we will be here providing updates, news, photos, blogs and more, to help you keep connected with nature over the coming weeks.  Remember you can follow us on @WildHaweswater on Twitter and at RSPB Haweswater (Official) on Facebook. As staffing on site will be limited, we would encourage you to email us as opposed to call with any questions. Please direct your enquiries to our Visitor Development Officer Heather at heather.devey@rspb.org.uk, who can directly respond to you or forward your enquiry to the appropriate member of staff.

Our staff and volunteers will be continuing to work tirelessly to save nature on our reserves and through conservation projects and campaigns.  More than ever, your support for nature is vital, and greatly appreciated.

You can find the RSPB’s latest response to coronavirus on our website here.

And the latest government information and advice on coronavirus can be found on the Department for Health and Social Care’s website.

Most importantly, keep safe and look out for one another.

Take care,

The RSPB Haweswater team.
