Updated 26 Jan:

In response to the continuing lockdown in England into February we have made the difficult decision to extend the following temporary changes to our operations across our nature reserves that have been in place since early January. The policy below is now in place until Sun 28 Feb:

  • Our ten nature reserves remain open. Residents of East Devon can still use the green, open spaces as part of their permitted daily exercise while observing social distancing measures. We ask all visitors to our reserves to take extra care when making contact with surfaces such as gates.
  • No events will take place in February.
  • We have paused volunteer activities on our sites. Recruitment of new volunteers is also suspended, but we have waiting lists for each of our roles. To add your name, please email
  • We will be adding daily content to our social media platforms @wildeastdevon so you can stay in the loop with what we’re up to.
  • The four Bird Hides at Seaton Wetlands will stay closed for the time being. Black Hole Marsh and the Axe Estuary can still be viewed from our open-air viewing facilities.
  • The toilets at Seaton Wetlands will remain open for now, continuing with the more regular cleaning schedule we currently have in place.
  • The Discovery Hut at Seaton Wetlands remains closed until further notice.
  • Our Tramper Hire service at Seaton Wetlands is suspended until further notice.
