Eight Nature Group Members visited Rutland Water Nature Reserve on a cool but mostly dry day at the end of May. This is one of the best places to watch birds and other wildlife in the UK with a Visitor centre with full facilities and information and over 20 wildlife hides to explore.
We certainly enjoyed the visit with quite a variety of birds and other animals photographed.
