  • The ospreys are the star attraction of Rutland Water. The first breeding ospreys in the UK for 150 years, that's some achievement!. Even better is the fact that they return year after year, increasing in numbers all the while.

    The reserve is home to many less obvious species too, and is well worth a visit. We recommend spending a good day in the hides on the south-west of Rutland Water. A personal favourite is the shallow-water hide. In May one of your campers noted over 70 species (both on the campsite and at Rutland Water).  On the campsite you will see resident tree-sparrows, green-woodpecker, marsh and willow tits (though we still haven't learned to differentiate) buzzards, red kites and lots more. 

    Rutland Bird Fair is an annual event on the 3rd weekend of August. If you are thinking of coming, please book as early as possible, it is very popular.
