Snuffle snuffle

This week I’ve been spider watching. I’ve seen hundreds of them! Yesterday I saw a garden spider eating a fly and the day before that I saw a daddy long legs stuck in a web. It wriggled and wriggled but it couldn’t get out. It is amazing how spiders can spin such beautiful webs. I wonder what it would be like to be a spider and live in a web. I think I might like it.

I’ve been out along the hedgerow picking blackberries today, I ate lots and lots. Most of them tasted sweet and juicy but a few were really sour! I’ve got purple juice all over my white stripes now though so I suppose I’d better go and clean myself up. Have you picked any yet?

Have any of you seen a barn owl this summer? I was lucky enough to see one yesterday swooping silently over the hedge near my burrow. It gave me quite a fright to begin with because I thought it was a ghost! It appeared so suddenly and silently, and it was so big and white, but then I realised that it was an owl and I remembered that I don’t believe in ghosts so I didn’t need to be frightened.

I hope I see it again, it was amazing!

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.

    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!!
