    The management of Sherwood has changed hands in recent years. Reading reviews, dog-walkers and young families don’t seem to be enjoying RSPB’s intervention, but it should be more bird-watcher friendly. Let’s go and see!

    Visitor Centre for café and toilets. Cost £3.00.

    ***Note this is FIRST Saturday in the month*** 

    There should be a number of Spring migrants dropping in, having crossed the North Sea from their wintering grounds. If there is any ringing taking place, we may be lucky to see birds in the hand - always a treat! A variety of habitat with pools, trees, sand-dunes, beach & sea, usually result in a good number of birds.

    Café and toilets at nearby NWT Holme. Cost £5.00 (£3.00 if NOA member).

    This is a rich mosaic of wildlife habitats, with beautiful lakes, riverside, meadows, reed beds, scrub and woodland. Warblers should have arrived. We can but hope there are Nightingales amongst them.

    A favourite site for the club and it rarely disappoints. There are shallow lagoons aplenty, reed beds and behind the seawall we get views over mudflats out to the Wash. Merlins, Little Stints and Curlew Sandpipers are regularly seen.

    Visitor Centre for toilets £3.00.
