Bird watching

Our reservoirs are a bird-watching paradise – with more than 170 different species spotted across the two centres.

Our hides will give you the best seat in the house when it comes to spying exotic visitors such as the red-rumped swallow, Slavonian grebe or blue-headed wagtails.

Migrating ospreys and egrets can be seen at Arlington during spring and autumn on our special Osprey platform.

And don’t forget to look out for our barn owl nesting boxes as you walk round the reservoir.
