Hi Davehobbo

I've only ever been to the Egleton end and love it there.
Plenty of hides to choose from.
The car park is free but there is a fee to Anglian Water to walk along the pathways and use the hides (4 I think).

Hi Dave, My husband and i spend alot of time at Rutland Water. Last year we used the Lyndon Reserve and the Tufted Duck hide was a favourite. Also at Lyndon is the Waderscrape hide and from this one you can see the pair of ospreys on their nest. So far this year we have been going to Egleton Reserve. We use Robin hide for the small birds and grasssnakes, Heron hide for the ospreys, Shoveler hide can be quite good for waders on a good day and Crake hide was good last year for kingfishers. Hope this helps a little.

I'm just resurrecting this thread.

We're going to the Rutland Water area for our holiday this year. Any recommendations for 'must visit' places?! Smile

Of course! I put 'Rutland Water' into the search engine - there are quite a few different views of this church!

Not sure if its a hotel or a training centre now, but there is an amazing looking building on the bank, very Gothic, lots of towers, great shots in the right light.

Sorry Carl, I really don't know the area at all - which 'bank'?
