Anglia Water Reserve at Rutland Water

Event info

Rutland Water Nature Reserve is one of the best places to watch birds and other wildlife in the UK. This internationally famous nature reserve is managed by the Leicestershire & Rutland Wildlife Trust in partnership with Anglian Water.  There is a Visitor centre with full facilities and information and over 20 wildlife hides to explore.

Parking and Reserve Fee: £6/adult, £5/Concession

In Spring all the water, meadows and hedgerows should be full of birds (and insects!) active in breeding preparation. The site lists Great White Egrets, rafts of ducks, fishing terns, grebes, coot, moorhen, herons, waders and fishing Osprey. There is a dedicated reserve for Osprey watching if you want to combine this. It is at a different location so probably best done on a second visit.
