Our Sanctuary area is made up of 9.5 acres of land and two large lakes that usually provides a home to a variety of domestic fowl and wildfowl. Sadly, due to avian flu restrictions we have had to take the necessary measures as required by the Government and move all our ducks and geese away from the water.
We care for a variety of hens, cockerels, turkeys, ducks
and geese. At present, all our birds are under cover to prevent them from coming into contact with wild birds. We do not have the virus at Raystede and we are taking all precautions to keep our birds safe from this deadly and highly contagious disease.
Regretfully, part of the lakes area is also closed but it is possible to walk through the rest of the Sanctuary area and enjoy views of the lake, the shade from the many trees and the wildlife in the hedgerows. Dogs on leads are very welcome on the designated dog walking path in this area.
