50 things to do this autumn

Children climbing a tree in the grounds of Mottisfont, Hampshire.

As the trees change colour and leaves start to drop, Brownsea becomes the perfect place to tick off some more of your 50 things to do before 11 3/4.

Play conkers

Head to Church Field or Horse Field to find conkers under the chestnut trees.

Catch a falling leaf

How many can you catch? Can you find different shapes, sizes and colours?

Go bird watching

Autumn is the perfect time to spot birds on Brownsea. Find a spot to sit quietly and see how many different birds you can spot. There are ID books and trackers packs at the Visitor Centre to help you work out what you have seen.

Climb a tree

The free tree climbing trail is waiting for you to pick up in the Visitor Centre. Can you climb all of the trees on the trail?
