Oh no! Springwatch is finished for another year! It makes me quite sad. I always looked forward to my nightly installments of Chris, Kate, Martin and Simon, not to mention the animal stars! I hope the little kestrel chicks will be alright without their mum, and that all the chicks do well. I can't wait to hear more about the sparrowhawk youngsters when Autumnwatch starts.

If you're a bit like me and missing the nest cameras already, why not check out some of The Wildlife Trusts' very own live videos? Cheshire Wildlife Trust has a swallow cam following the fortunes of a young family near them, and Alderney Wildlife Trust has set up a puffin cam in a seabird colony.

Have a look at them here:

Those Springwatch kestrel chicks are so lucky - did you see them eating all those lovely, juicy earthworms this week? Yum yum, there really is nothing tastier. The wet weather has been good for one thing at least. With all those worms about, blackbirds and badgers aren't short of their favourite snacks!

I've been seeing lots of frogs hopping about in the damp grass too. I wonder if lots of this year's tadpoles are starting to turn into adults and traveling about to look for new ponds? It means I have to watch where I tread though. I've nearly squished a few already!

I'm so excited by Springwatch - isn't it great?!

I've been watching the live webcams of all the animal stars that appear on the show. I think the blue tits were my favourite before they fledged, but now I like the little fluffy-headed wrens! Take a look yourself by visiting the Springwatch website: www.bbc.co.uk/springwatch

Have you all been watching? What did you think to the amazing otter footage, or the fights between the avocets and the shelducks? And what about the clever filming they've done of hobbies catching dragonflies, underwater fish and bats at night!

Isn't nature great? I can't wait for more next week!

Hello everyone!

So you saw High Seas programme too, Ottero? It was good, wasn't it! I particularly liked watching the orcas in the dark as they were following the fishing boat - they looked quite ghostly as they emerged from the sea into the light.

Did you see them 'skyhopping' to take a look at the people filming them? And the way they stun fish with their powerful tails to stun them was very clever.

They're a bit like badgers of the sea really. Living in groups, black and white, active at night, taking freebies from people when they can get them, and highly intelligent! I bet they don't write blogs though...
