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!

Exciting news everyone!

Our friend Chris Packham is going to be on Blue Peter on Thursday 31 January and you can send in your questions for him about winter wildlife. Have a look on the homepage to find out how.

I'm going to ak him what his favourite UK animal is. I'm sure he'll say it's the badger...

    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!!
