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.

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...

    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!!
