One of the best birdwatching spots in southern England, Tring Reservoirs has a diverse range of birdlife to spot.
Wilstone Reservoir, one of the four Tring Reservoirs, was made famous by the first nesting in this country of black-necked grebes in 1918. It is also home to the rare mudwort plant, and hobbies can be spotted hunting across the water. Tringford Reservoir, the smallest of the four, has a tranquil ambience. The open water of Startop’s Reservoir attracts grebes and, if conditions are suitable, little ringed plovers. Marsworth Reservoir has large corn bunting roosts, and the occasional sighting of bitterns in winter.
