I took a trip to the beach last week. I'd heard it was National Marine Week so I thought I would have a go at rockpooling. It was amazing! There were all sorts of creatures that I'd never seen before. I saw anemones and limpets and a very small starfish. I even saw a crab hiding under a rock. I think I got a bit too close to him though because he gave me a pinch right on the end of my nose. It still hurts now. Next time I think I'll look for dolphins, they might be less snappy.

Cor the weather is so hot! Last night it stayed warm all night. I wish I could take my fur coat off. At least I can escape to my cool burrow during the day and escape from the heat. If only they made worm flavoured ice-cream, I'd like some of that.

There was a strange light in a box near my burrow last night. I couldn't work out what it could be or why it was there. But then this morning I peered out of my burrow and saw some people arrive to look in the box.

It turns out that it was a moth trap. All the moths had flown towards the light in the box during the night and they were still there this morning. I liked a big pink and green one best. Someone said it was called an Elephant Hawk Moth. I’ll keep my eye out for those from now on.

Has anyone had a go at the activity sheets in the games and downloads section of the website? I've just made my own pond dipping net out of an old pair of tights!

I wonder what I'll find in the pond near my sett? Maybe dragons...

Hooray - spring has arrived at last!

I've been ticking off all the returning birds I've seen and recording the dates. So far I've seen swallows, sand martins and blackcaps, and I've heard chiffchaffs and willow warblers (my favourite). Their song is a bit like how I imagine a waterfall would sound if it could sing!

Has anyone heard a cuckoo yet? I love how they say their name. I might try it. Bad-ger! Bad-ger! Bad-ger!

    Last night I was looking out my bedroom window and I saw a Fox nipping past .It was at 11:00 and it had a big bushy tail.

    I saw a few scrapes and some torn out fur on the grass in a local park yesterday, obviously rabbits fighting. What would they be fighting about, though, at this time of year? My teacher said he's known them to have kittens as late as December in a wool bale, how territorial are the bucks though? (We human does are generally more civilised, but I don't have any rabbit friends)
