Snuffle snuffle

Hee hee! I'm glad you like it! It took me ages and ages to make. Buster the blue tit is even there!

Hedge popped round to my sett the other day and said that chiffchaffs had started to arrive - isn't that exciting? I find them very hard to tell apart from other warblers by just looking at them. And they're very hard to see because they are so small and brown! But there's no mistaking that loud 'chiff-chaff chiff-chaff!' song.

I've seen house martins skimming across a lake near where I live, so it won't be long before swallows start coming in. Lots of you are already saying you might have spotted one!

Badger's Easter egg

Snuffle snuffle

Happy Easter everyone! I hope you all have a lovely break and make the most of the time off with lots of nature activities.

Badgers aren't really supposed to eat chocolate, but I might see if I can persuade some of my local humans to donate a hot cross bun or two!

I'm off to put the finishing touches to my decorated egg now - it's going to look like me! Perhaps I'll show you a picture next time you drop by...

Look at this lovely video I've found of a sleepy fox in a London back garden. Isn't it cute? I bet you can't watch it without saying 'awww'.

You all think I'm that cute, right?

Hee hee - more jokes please!

What kind of snake is good at maths? An adder!

Ooh, I've got an even better one for Easter. What do you call a rabbit that's just had hot water poured down its burrow? A hot cross bun!

    hi , just had 2 great trips back home to wales . first was on sunday nov 17 when i went to RSPB Conway with sutton coldfield rspb group. early start at 7am and got there about 10.15am . we had a great day , saw lots of waterfowl and waders including the elusive water rail . great view. weather was great too and i got some bara brith and welsh cakes from the cafe. two days later my friend and i were at lake Vyrnwy in mid wales and we had snow flurries , saw snow on the mountains and at lower ground too , i was a mutt---i left my camera at home so couldnt take any snowy pics! the sun was out , sky blue and it was so beaurtiful.. in the hide we saw lots of small birds on the feeders such as siskin , great,blue ,marsh and coal tits, chaffinches , robin, nuthatch, and saw pheasants on the ground too , we had lunch in the cafe and went to the rspb shop where i found enough snow for snowballs!. we went over the dam and saw 2 ravens and a redkite circling overhead. we drove round the lake as someone told us dippers had been seen but sadly we didnt see them. we had had a great day. i have seen a small hedgehog outside on the grass and was concerned about as it should have hibernated by now. and may not survuive the winter. however i havent seen it lately so maybe at last it has hibernated .. i did see a squashed hedgehog up the road on way to church on sunday morning so hope it wasnt that little one i had seen last week.. any one else seen any late hedgehogs?

    I just went bird spotting for a few minutes but I didn't find much because it was really cold so I came in after a while and didn't get much done. I found 3 black birds, two flying together and one flying on it's own, and one magpie.

    I'm going bird spotting today and I'm hoping to use the book that I've got on birds from wildlife watch! Wish me luck!

    Did you know that me and my family found these mushrooms in our garden and my brother keep saying that there are Smurfs living in the mushrooms but I don't believe that! I think that that is a very good imagination he has got though because I wouldn't of thought of Smurfs I would though of fairies wouldn't you?
