WINTER BIRDING AT RUTLAND WATER

Rutland Water is the destination for this winter trip. England’s largest man-made reservoir is home to good numbers of wintering and resident birds, making an ideal location for a November visit. Winter species such as Great Northern Diver, Slavonian Grebe, Smew, Greater Scaup, Brambling, scoter or a rare gull such as Iceland could still be present.

Red Kite is resident along with occasional Willow Tit plus Yellowhammer and Eurasian Tree Sparrow. These fantastic birds can be seen on the feeders by the Visitor Centre at Lyndon.

There is always plenty to see here, with over 30 hides to keep us occupied!

£50
