LRWT Rutland Water

Rutland Water is managed by Leicestershire and Rutland Wildlife Trust on behalf of Anglian Water.

The reserve has 3 main lagoons, which have muddy banks, small islands and reed beds. The lagoons are bordered by willow scrub and parts of the reserve have meadows and hedgerows.

Rutland Water has an Osprey translocation programme which aims to restore Ospreys as a breeding species in central England.

Annually, the reserve is host to the British Bird Watching Fair.

I've only been twice to Rutland Water a couple of times. The first time it rained heavily and incessantly all day, the second time was for the bird fair (2005) and was a glorious day with some great birds, including Osprey and Turtle Dove.
