Sorby Invertebrate Group Leader: Derek Whiteley, email: invertebrates@sorby.org.uk

This is a full-day meeting on the heathland at the northern end of the Sherwood Forest NNR to look at and record both lichens and invertebrates. The site has a mosaic of heathland, trees, scrub and wetland.

It is a joint meeting of the Lichen and Invertebrate groups of Sorby NHS

Permission has been granted for us to collect specimens for the purpose of identification.

Meet at 10.30am at the car park of the Sherwood Forest Country Park Visitor Centre, Edwinstowe, Notts. NG21 9HN (grid ref. SK626 676). NOTE: use the car park at the main visitors centre which is on the B6034 1km north of the centre of Edwinstowe. This is not the car park for the Craft Centre. The car park is pay-and-display. Toilets and a café are available there. From the car park it is a 1.5 km walk north to the site but it is the best place for a group to meet.

As usual people with all levels of experience (or inexperience) are welcome. Strong footwear and waterproof clothing are recommended. Bring a hand-lens, lunch and drinks.
