The British Trust for Ornithology (BTO) is an independent charitable research institute combining professional and citizen science aimed at using evidence of change in wildlife populations, particularly birds, to inform the public, opinion-formers and environmental policy- and decision-makers. 

Here at Brinvale Bird Foods the farm is  not only producing food but bursting with wildlife. We are dedicated to sustaining natural habitats, producing a range of high quality bird food, whilst providing excellent service and advice to our customers. It seemed a natural choice to partner with the BTO who provide us with essential information to ensure we can continue to support British birds and wildlife.

British Garden Birds is dedicated to helping garden birdwatchers to identify and enjoy the birds that visit their gardens, and to understand the birds' lives and behaviour. 

Rutland Water

This internationally famous nature reserve is managed in partnership with Anglian Water and the Leicestershire & Rutland Wildlife Trust and provides one of the most important wildfowl sanctuaries in Great Britain. 

The Reserve is also home to the successful Osprey project where the first Osprey chick to fledge in Central England for 150 years was hatched in 2001. Ospreys are regularly seen fishing over the reservoir from April - September.  


The Leicestershire & Rutland Ornithological Society (LROS) was founded in 1941, and now has around 600 members. Our aims are to promote the study, conservation and enjoyment of birds and birding in Leicestershire and Rutland.
