Cool! I’m going to have a go at making the ‘Christmas bird wreath’ which is a new activity sheet that has just been added to the ‘downloads’ page of the website. It can hang up outside my sett and I’ll be able to sit inside and watch the birds enjoy some festive food. I wonder what species will come along for a snack? I’d really like to see a green woodpecker. Do you think one might visit?

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.
