This is the second wave of a piece of research commissioned to provide an understanding of outdoor visits and engagement with nature in Scotland during the Coronavirus crisis. Wave 1 of the research (RR 1252 'Enjoying the outdoors: Monitoring the impact of coronavirus and social distancing') was published in August 2020 and covered the initial period of lockdown between 23rd March and 28th May 2020 when a 'stay at home' message was central. Wave 2 of the research was undertaken between 5th and 12th September 2020 when lockdown restrictions had been eased and covered the preceding 4 weeks (i.e. mid-August to early September). The Wave 2 research findings are based on 1,103 online interviews undertaken with a representative sample of Scottish adults including a 'booster' sample of 100 interviews undertaken with members of the Black, Asian and Minority Ethic population.
