Eyebrook Reservoir was formed by damming the small Eyebrook feeder stream in 1939. The water was drawn off to feed the Stewarts and Lloyds steel works in nearby Corby. For many years the fluctuating water levels exposed large areas of mud which made the reservoir extremely attractive to waders. The reservoir was the major birding attraction in the area prior to the building of Rutland Water.

A nice aspect of Eyebrook is that you can drive round half of the reservoir and see most of it from the car. Members of the Leicestershire and Rutland Ornithological Society are allowed entry to the plantation and dam areas.
