Discover Rutland Water Nature Reserve

One of the most important wildfowl sanctuaries in Britain and a Site of Special Scientific Interest, the 1000-acre Rutland Water Nature Reserve is a nature-lover's paradise. Since its creation in the 1970s, the reserve has accumulated an impressive bird population, celebration in the Rutland Osprey Project and Anglian Water Birdwatching Centre - both of which are found on-site. For the more active, sailing and windsurfing have proved popular on the reservoir in recent years, while the lagoon's centre is known for its trout fishing.
