June 26 (Bloomberg) -- Anglian Water, which supplies wastewater and water services to 6 million customers in eastern England, said nesting birds will benefit from 60 floating plant-filled rafts it commissioned at its Pitsford reservoir.

The reservoir in Northamptonshire provides protection for wildlife and breeding birds including coots and little and great crested grebes, Anglian Water’s biodiversity action plan scientist, Mike Drew, said on the company’s website.

The U.K.’s recent drought saw reservoir water levels drop to 60 percent of normal, affecting wildlife habitats, Anglian Water said. The reservoir supplies water to Northampton and parts of Daventry and Brixworth. Pitsford’s nature reserve is jointly run by Anglian Water and the Wildlife Trust.
