Car crash in Rutland and the Rutland Water Reserve
The county of Rutland is found in the centre of England and is home to the water reservoir that provides much of the Anglian region’s drinking water, Rutland Water. Rutland Water was opened in 1976 and there are few artificial lakes in Europe that can compare with its size. Its size is due to it being used to provide drinking water for an area that is very dry and densely populated. The only reservoir that has a bigger capacity is Kielder Water but in terms of surface area it is the largest reservoir in the nation. In the middle of the lake there is a peninsula that runs down the centre and is home to the community of Hambleton. During a flood the houses are very susceptible to flooding and a church in the town of Normanton did not escape the last flood.
While, the Rutland Water reservoir is primary used to supply drinking water, it is also a popular place for water sports, sailing, fishing, cycling and walking. There is a 40 km track that is circular in shape and is excellent for visitors who want to go walking or cycling around the lake. Also, you can take a cruise down the lake in the Rutland Belle that takes a tour of Rutland Water, on the cruise you can see the variety of wildlife that populates the lake and the surrounding wetlands.
The lake and areas of wetlands that surround it, located at the western side of the lake, are a nature reserve that is managed by the Leicestershire and Rutland Wildlife Trust. It contains important wildlife populations and as such it has been designated as a Special Protection Area. The wildlife in the area mostly consists of birds and the Anglian Water Bird Watching Centre is located here. In August, the centre becomes the home of the British Birdwatching Fair where birdwatching enthusiasts come from all across the nation to view the rare bird species at Rutland Water. Some of the species that can be seen are the Gadwall, Shoveler, Coot, Teal and Goldeneye. The lake is also home to various fish species.
