A spotting scope is especially helpful at this reservoir. There is parking for handicapped placarded vehicles at top of the drive to the boat ramp. You can observe birds from the boat ramp with a scope. The 2-mile walking trail around the reservoir can provide closer views of birds.

About the Wellington Upground Reservoir
Wellington Upground Reservoir is known primarily for the large numbers of waterfowl that stop in fall migration. Nearly every species of diving duck can be seen, sometimes at one time. Massive numbers of American Coots and Ruddy Ducks also gather in late fall. Common Loons can be expected, especially in April and November. Osprey and Bald Eagles are regular visitors.
