Check out this video footage of a bittern at Mere Sands Wood, a Lancashire Wildlife Trust nature reserve (filmed by Ron Jackson).

Bittern camouflage is amazing, and the careful way they move helps them to stay hidden in their reedbed home. See if you can spot its huge foot when it stretches.

The Lancashire Wildlife Trust hope that the bittern breeding season will be starting at Mere Sands Wood soon.

Wow - there are snowdrops everywhere! You go to sleep for a few weeks and when you wake up, everything is different!

I think that's my cue to start getting active again. At least I don't have to worry about making a New Year's resolution to lose weight like humans do - all that lovely fat I worked so hard to put on before Christmas has melted away. Now I have to start all over again.

Time to get to work...

*YAWN*

Is winter over yet? I find it hard to stay wide awake and active at this time of year. I don't like leaving my warm bed!

Wake me up when the spring flowers start popping up.

Check out this cute video! There's no sound, but can you guess what noise this little fella is making?

Thank you for sharing it with us, Surrey Wildlife Trust!

There are loads of goldfinches visiting my bird feeders at the moment. They love the tiny seeds I put out for them and make a lovely twittery noise as they gather.

They're eating me out of house and home!

    We have lots of cats near our house and they come into my garden but we have a light in the garden and it lights up when something or someone comes nar it.The cats go under it and I think it scares my mum!

    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)
