I've been out and about picking blackberries too - they're really yummy! We badgers like a bit of something sweet every now and again, although I'm not so sure about the prickles. My sensitive nose gets quite a scratching!

Next time you go foraging, why not leave the spares out in the garden for a hungry badger to find? I don't even mind if they're squishy and grubby - any insects living on them is a bonus for me!

Wrenicca - lots of badgers are out and about at the moment so keep an eye out as it starts to get dark. We are busy making the most of the last of the summer foods while it's still warm and light, and lots of this year's youngsters are starting to roam about.

Birdfair was awesome! I had a special Birdfair spotting sheet that I took around with me and managed to tick everything off, including an osprey, a man with a beard and someone off the telly! I saw Chris Packham, Nick Baker and David Lindo the Urban Birder. I was too shy to say hello though...

I love your certificate idea, Swiftafa! Chris must have really liked it too to display it with his photos on his stand. Poo Expert - tee hee!

Did you know that the Wildlife Trusts' stand got some certificates of its own too? We won 'Best In Show' and 'Best Conservation' stand awards! I think the judges must have liked our garden shed cinema and cool games, not to mention all the free sweets and goodies...

Alright, maybe I was fibbing a bit about Scottish wildcats wearng kilts, but wouldn't that be cool? I think this guy would look great in a bit of tartan, what do you think?

You all sound like you've been getting out and about lots lately and doing fun activities. I'm really looking forward to Birdfair at the weekend - it will be the first time I've been for a trip away from my sett for ages! Come and say hello if you're going and make sure you have a go at some of the amazing games and competitions on The Wildlife Trusts' stand!

Hee hee - you guys are awesome!

I love your quiz, Buzzyades, and thank you for writing to me lots. I think I would answer mostly C's, but I do spend time indoors to write my blog!

Hedgeina's dolphin pictures are amazing too. I bet you were really excited to see them. I know I would be! You're all spotting lots of butterflies, bees, hornets and foxes, and asking lots of interesting wildlife questions too.

Why is a Scottish Wildcat not called a European Wildcat, Foxonis? I think it's because they have a different accent to their European cousins and wear teeny tiny kilts when no one's looking.

I like peacock butterflies too, Sealoles. They're very pretty. And it sounds like Buzzyades will see lots of really exotic types when visiting the butterfly park. I'd love to go to one, escpecially if I could see a chrysalis hatching!

Swiftafa is off to BirdFair later this month too - sometimes even I go there! It's a great place to meet lots of other wildlife enthusiasts and have a go at cool nature activities. I've done pond dipping there before and watched how scientists put special rings on birds to help find out more about them, just like this song thrush I saw.

Perhaps I'll sneak along again this year!

    Hi all, I really want to go to richmond park in London to see deer and parakeets. Yes, the things that you least expected to find in London are in an urban park! If I see a deer then I won't have to go to Scotland to look for one and parakeets, well, they're just parakeets! I also want to see a London bird of prey, either Sparrow hawk or Perrigen falcon. I saw a Perrigen falcon on deadly 360 a few years ago, so that made me want to see one! London wildlife, you think, may be just the old pigeon but NO! And NOT exotic african animals that have escaped from London zoo. Birds of prey, fresh water fish, deer, exotic parrots and much, much more. Even BATS! Yes, BATS! No, I'm not joking about any of this! So you may want to come to London and stare at tigers in a zoo enclosure. But there's a deeper significance to the wildlife in London, you just have to look.....

    Hi, A few days ago me and my family went on a country walk. I'm surprised we didn't spot more Wildlife! We only spotted a (yet another) Grey Squirrel. My sister saw a millipede but only she saw it, because when the rest of us had turned around it was gone. She's only 6, so I can see why she's proud of it. I said millipedes were really rare.

    hi all . last night a hedgehog was snuffling on the lawn looking for food . it wasnt a full size animal and should have been hibernating. i gave him some cat food and watched him eat it just outside the window. when i looked again the cat food was gone and so had he . has anyone else seen hedgehogs in their garden?

    Hi everyone, a few days ago we went on a walk around some lakes and along a canal. We saw some great crested grebes in their winter plumage and some goldeneyes. I went on this walk at the same time last year and saw a goldeneye too but this year I saw two. There were lots of tufted ducks as well. It was really good!!
