Enjoy a circular walk around this pretty reservoir and nature reserve in Northamptonshire. The 140 acre reservoir is a peaceful place for a walk and also has some good bird watching opportunites. Birds you may see include grey phalarope, dunlin, and ringed plover. To use the car park and do go bird watching at the lake you can purchase a permit from the Pitsford Fishing Lodge. See the link below for more details.
Head about half a mile south of the reservoir and you can visit the nearby Ravensthorpe Reservoir.
