Catch up with Badger's nature adventures here every week.
Shhh! I'm being extra quiet. I'll let you stay, but only if you promise not to make any noise!
I'm trying to be like a wildlife presenter and watch animal behaviour. It's harder than I thought it would be and it's taken me ages to blend into the background. Black stripes stand out on the snow!
But guess what I saw earlier. A fieldfare! It was like the one in this video, but it wasn't sitting and eating an apple nicely. It came into my garden, found one of the berry trees and then chased all the other birds away! It's been guarding the tree for ages now and won't let anything get near.
Nature detective observation of the week: Fieldfares don't like to share!
Happy New Year, nature lovers! Did you all have a nice Christmas break?
My sett is quickly becoming snowed in so I've decided to stay indoors today. I bet a few of you have got the day off school. I'm not going to miss out on some nature exploring though - I'm going to use this as a chance to break out my really wild Christmas presents!
This year Santa brought me a fantastic pair of mini binoculars, perfect for spotting winter wildlife through the window whilst staying snug and warm inside. My favourite Aunty Badger also gave me an art set, so I'm going to try and draw some of the things I see.
Now then, what colour do I use for ice...?
Hello everyone. Did you all have a good Christmas? My mum and dad took me to stay with my aunt and uncle badger who live in a field by the sea in a place called Hampshire.
I've been spending lots of time watching all the seaside birds that I never see at home (and only read about in my bird books). I've seen redshanks with their red legs, curlews with their curvy bills, turnstones pecking around in the seaweed and even these amazing-looking white herons called little egrets. They have a tufty hair-do, funny yellow feet and I've been watching them fishing (which they are very good at!). You can see a video of a little egret fishing that I found on YouTube under here.
And here's a photo of a seagull that I took on my holiday just before it flew off. My dad let me borrow his camera to take it! Maybe next year if I'm very lucky I'll get my own camera for Christmas......
See you soon everyone and Happy New Year!
You'll never guess what I did this week!
My friends at the Wildlife Trusts took me for a day out to the seaside. We went to a special place called Donna Nook - a Lincolnshire Wildlife Trust reserve. It was cold and windy, and not really sandcastle building weather, but that wasn't what we went for.
We went to see the grey seals! The mummy seals come out to rest on the beach and have their babies - more than 1000 of them!
Some of the pups were still there with their furry white coat (like this one), but many of the mums and dads had already returned to the sea. The ones that were left were still very cute, and we learnt lots of seal facts from the rangers and volunteers who help to look after their beach.
You can read more about them on the Lincs Trust website: www.lincstrust.org.uk/reserves/nr/reserve.php?mapref=15
I want to go again next year to see the babies being born!
Exciting news, everyone! There is a brand new game to play on the website called 'Rock n Vole', and I've been up all night with Solar trying to beat our highest scores!
You are the hero - a water vole - and you must swim along the river collecting food but avoiding dangers by diving under the water. I keep getting eaten by owls and bumping into shopping trolleys that have been pushed in by naughty teenagers. Solar is much better at it than me...

In Britain reptiles are so rare but there are places like Dorset that reptiles are quite common.When we went to Vietnam reptiles are so common.
When we go away on holiday we see lizards they are really small and they hide under rocks. We LOVE them they are cute scared of people.
I have never seen lizards here so rare to find them amazing!
