The nature reserves at Anglian Water's water parks provide excellent facilities for those who enjoy bird watching, with purpose built hides and nature trails.

Rutland Water, Grafham Water and Pitsford Water Parks are designated sites of Special Scientific Interest and Rutland Water Park is also designated as a European Special Protection Area and RAMSAR site. The nature reserves are managed in partnership with the local Wildlife Trusts.

  • The diverse habitats include woodland, grassland and wetland, supporting populations of insects, birds, mammals and amphibians as well as rare plants.
  • There are bird hides, some of which are accessible to wheelchair users, and nature trails.
  • Regular events and activities are held on the nature reserves and volunteers are always welcome. More information can be found on the website links below.
  • Access to the reserves is restricted to permit holders and day and season permits are available.

Permits and information leaflets are available from the reserve visitor centres.

At Taverham Mill fishery there is a nature trail around the lake and work has started to create a nature reserve on site. A permit to walk the trail can be purchased from the fishing lodge shop.
