Rutland Water

  • Rutland is one corner of England where you're guaranteed a knock-out ornithological experience.

"We live on a series of rather wet islands so we are not short of great freshwater habitats - streams, rivers, lakes, lochs, canals… Water plays an incredibly important role in the shaping of our landscape.

"Waterways are a great place to see wildlife from a very different perspective. They're amongst the best places to see some of our most exciting wildlife during the spring months."
