Until Government 'lockdown' instructions on non-essential travel change, this page will not be updated with any more bird news. If you go out at all, stay local (within walking distance of your home) and keep at least 2 metres away from others.

I will continue to add any important announcements below. Please continue to submit what bird records you have in the usual way (see Bird Recording page).

All of Rutland Water, including the Egleton and Lyndon reserves, is now closed until the end of June.

Charnwood Lodge NR is also closed, but other LRWT reserves remain open for now. However, do NOT drive to them!

All County Council-run Country Parks, including Beacon Hill and Burrough Hill are closed until further notice.

Bradgate Park and Swithland Wood are closed to visitors until further notice.

All indoor meetings and outings are cancelled until further notice.
