All-terrain mobility scooter allows people to explore nature reserve

Essex Wildlife Trust’s Fingringhoe Wick nature reserve now offers a mobility scooter for people with limited mobility to enjoy the reserve.

An all-terrain mobility scooter has been generously donated to Essex Wildlife Trust’s Fingringhoe Wick Visitor Centre and nature reserve. The ‘Tramper’ is a true off-road mobility scooter which allows the driver to safely cross rough, uneven terrain and unpaved routes. 

Essex Wildlife Trust’s Fingringhoe Wick Visitor Centre invites those who have previously been unable to access all parts of the reserve due to limited mobility to experience the all-terrain mobility scooter and explore their beautiful nature reserve just outside of Colchester.

At this time of year you can witness large numbers of wading birds gathering in the Colne Estuary, where they come to feed on the rich intertidal mud. Enjoy the peace and quiet of this tranquil reserve, where you might catch a glimpse of a striking Kingfisher, a soaring Marsh harrier or a silently hunting Barn owl. There are a huge array of habitats to experience and numerous trails to explore.

We are thrilled to now be offering the all-terrain mobility scooter to our visitors, it will allow those with limited mobility to enjoy and access this fantastic reserve all year round.
