Rutland Wildlife Sanctuary was a natural progression to develop and extend the work of the Centre, initially catering for injured Wildlife from the immediate area.

Taking good care of injured wildlife

Whenever possible, rescued birds and animals continue to be released back into the wild in consultation with the Centres Veterinary Support. RWS is not open to the public as injured birds and animals require a degree of solitude in-order to recover from trauma or surgery. Others looking to be released back into the wild, benefit from a period of quiet readjustment.

An ambition to preserve and educate


At the centre there is an ever increasing diversity in flora an fauna to delight all ages.

The wild bird, animal and plant species to be found within the varied habitats of the centre include the familiar such as blue tits, rabbits and bluebells . . . but as the ecology of this habitat has strengthened we have seen more scarce species making an appearance.

The addition of nesting boxes, for instance, meant that Treecreepers, Wrens, Robins and wild Tawny Owls as well as pipistrelle bats have been recorded not to mention the resident blue, Great and importantly Coal and Marsh Tits.

In the plant world there have been literally hundreds of species recorded and there has even been a survey conducted on moths found at the centre.

Wander in the woods

ANCIENT WOODLANDS have not been artificially planted, they have developed naturally and continuously for 300-400 years or more.

The diverse eco-systems from these woods form an integral part of England’s Heritage which are protected and regulated by law from the impact serious disturbance would leave on irreplaceable habitat.

If you have an appreciation of nature at its best, if you are open to experiencing the floor to canopy wonders that may be found for yourself – please join us.

RFOC offers the opportunity ~ we would argue ~ to take an unrivalled and enduring photographic record of your visit.
