RSPBNBLG Walk - Rutland Water Nature Reserve
We start our 2019/20 season with a visit to England's premier inland water site. Last September we saw 62 species of bird, including Snipe, Ruff, Green Sandpiper, Lesser Scaup, Common Scoter, Garganey and Marsh Harrier. Always a possibility of passage waders and maybe an Osprey or two if they have not yet departed for their winter homes. (Lots of Osprey chicks fledged at Rutland this year so always a chance). Many hides around this large reserve - and a small visitor centre (with shop for books, bins ans scopes - plus a few snacks). We'll aim to return to cars around the middle of the day so you may want to bring a packed lunch.
Meet in the (free) car park. Nearest postcode LE15 8BT, signposted off the A6003 1 mile south of Oakham.
Most paths and many hides suitable for wheelchairs & buggies. Mobility scooter available to hire - must be booked in advance - see their web page for more details on this and other access provision.
Entrance fee £6/£5 concessions
