We saw plenty of gulls, various kinds of duck, coot, swans, terns, great crested grebe (one on a nest) and a little egret. We didn't visit the Lyndon reserve where you can watch the ospreys.

We had to get permits from the Visitor Centre at Egleton - £4.30 each for us seniors, for a day's permit. The only way to see this part of the land round Rutland Water.
