Big Garden Birdwatch is the biggest citizen science wildlife survey in the world with up to ½ million participants.

Visit the brand new Sherwood Forest Visitor Centre and find out about the legend of Robin Hood and the ecology and wildlife of Sherwood Forest. Call in the nearby Sherwood Forest Arts and Craft Centre to browse the studio's and watch crafters and painters in action. The arts and craft centre offers children's activities each Wednesday during school holidays.
Enjoy an evening of stargazing at Sherwood Forest!
Learn about the night sky in general, particularly naked eye celestial delights such as the planets, aurora, meteors and stars.
Nigel Cunnington will provide his in-depth knowledge of all things radio astronomy, and will have a fabulous display of meteorites for visitors to look at and hold, each having its own story to tell. We also hope to listen to meteors in real-time using an antenna and computer software.
The evening will include a talk about the Moon, and if we’re lucky enough to have a clear night, will include viewing it with telescopes provided by Mansfield and Sutton Astronomical Society.
£8 per person, or £6.40 for RSPB Members. Not suitable for children under 8 years.
