Wintery Scenes

Sunday, December 18th 2022

A light layer of snow coated the reserve yesterday morning.

Up on the moorland Spigot Mere was frozen.

Overnight the temperatures remained well below freezing and this is a view of part of the wetland today.

The main lake was also covered in ice.

The reserve will be open during the Christmas period from 9am - dusk mid-week and from 10am - dusk on weekends and Bank Holidays. It will be closed only on Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Year's Day. Please note there is currently restricted access on the Red Route due to bridge repairs and the tower hides are temporarily closed. Alternative trails are shown on a map outside the Field Centre. We apologise for any inconvenience.
