Snuffle snuffle

It's been very frosty here this week. I love the frost! I've been out every night trampling about on the crunchy frozen grass. It chills my toes but I love it! I've been listening to the tawny owls calling to each other too. They hoot so much at this time of year! And have you seen the stars? There have been no clouds, just hundreds of twinkling lights in the sky. Amazing! Dark cold nights are great!

Yesterday I’d just settled down to eat a lovely bowl full of slug stew when suddenly I heard some great thundering footsteps outside. It was like an earthquake! I jumped so much that my hot stew was sloshed all down my tummy! Disaster! When I went to see what was happening, there were three deer outside. They were magnificent creatures with shiny brown coats and enormous antlers. I watched them quietly for a few minutes before a sudden gust of wind rattled the trees and off they galloped through the undergrowth again.

Of course, my stew was ruined and I had to make do with worms on toast, but I didn’t mind, because deer are amazing!

I’ve been out playing with the beautiful fallen leaves this week. There are so many amazing colours, I’ve had LOADS of fun! Look what I made! I think it looks a bit like a sunflower. I’m going out again today to make something different, perhaps a rainbow or maybe even a badger!

It’s been a damp week here so I’ve had great fun looking at all the cobwebs. Every morning they have been covered in tiny glistening dew drops, making then really easy to spot. I never knew there were so many spiders and cobwebs, I’ve seen hundreds and hundreds! Those spiders are pretty clever to weave such wonderful webs don’t you think? I’ve spotted a few flies too that weren’t so clever and have been caught up in the silken threads! I think I might try to take some photos of the webs this week because they are just so beautiful.

Yesterday I was walking along the edge of the wood when I suddenly heard a strange sound coming from the sky. It sounded a bit like ‘kee-aww, kee-aww’. When I looked up I discovered that there was a pair of buzzards circling overhead, calling out to each other! They soared up higher and higher with their huge wings, it was an awesome sight. Today I’ve seen them again! Maybe they are moving in to the wood. How exciting!

    hi , had a great day at martin mere wwt recently and i did a sponsored birdwatch fir children in need and raised £75. i saw 47 species from pinkfooted geese , whooper swans and more but the highlight was seeing 2 tawny owls at the top of a tree!. really cool . plus tree sparrows collecting nest material! even saw some spring flowers out too i was waiting for my bus on tuesday and had a look at the bits in the garden by the bus stop and saw tiny shoots coming up --snowdrops and crocuses. have a look in gardens where you are and see if you can spot any .

    I was checking my fish in the pond when two baby fish darted from one side of the pond to the other.

    I have actually seen a dolphin when I went to Crete. I went on a pirate ship called The Black Rose.
