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...

Wow wow wow! Have you seen the cool new LEGO competition?

You have to build a UK minibeast out of LEGO and then send in a picture. The winner gets some awesome LEGO Monster Fighters sets. Have a look on the homepage to find out more.

I love LEGO and I love minibeasts, so I'm going to have a go. But what should I make? An earthworm? Maybe a beetle? So many choices!

Grr, what is that loud noise? It keeps waking me up! It sounds like someone screeching, but I bet it's one of those big pink birds. I've been seeing more and more of them around lately digging about in the leaves.

They look like they're collecting acorns. When they find one they fly off with it in their beak. Maybe they're stashing them somewhere? My friend Solar says they are jays and that they are really busy in the autumn. Have you seen one?

I keep seeing lots of big dragonflies fluttering about when I go on my walks. It's nice to see them late in the year like this, as well as all the butterflies that suddenly seem to have arrived. Perhaps they're make the most of things before winter gets here!

Here's one I spotted the other day that let me get really close. It was sitting on a branch and didn't seem to mind me taking its picture. I had to sneak up very slowly and quietly though - not easy when you have four feet to worry about, I can tell you.

    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!!
