COVID-19: Stay safe in nature!

All Langdyke events have been cancelled for the foreseeable future because of the Coronavirus outbreak.

This is in response to the Government guidance on COVID-19. We are sorry to have had to take this decision, but we know you will understand.

This includes the annual meeting which is due to have taken place on April 23.

Langdyke chair Richard Astle said:

“In light of the Prime Minister’s new advice to stay at home, we can no longer encourage people to visit our reserves – that would seem irresponsible. We have suspended all work on our reserves. Our hides at Etton Maxey Pits are now locked.

“But we will be doing everything we can to keep you in touch with the nature you can find in your gardens over the coming days and weeks. We will also maintain – strictly in line with Government guidance – our livestock checking programme to ensure our sheep remain healthy.

“We will continue to use our Facebook page to keep each other in touch with what we see and what we hear; to ask questions about what to look out for and to ask for help with identification!

“We will shortly be launching a spring migrant project through Facebook so we can see who really did hear the first cuckoo and see the first swallow.

“Stay in touch, stay safe and enjoy the natural world around your home.

“Best wishes to you, your families and friends and to all our key workers, thank you.”
