How sad - Springwatch is over for another year. It went so fast! I enjoyed watching the web cams so that I could keep an eye on the stars of the show - the birds that is, not the presenters! - and I wonder how they'll all get on now that the show is over.

I think my favourite bit was hearing about the osprey chicks hatching at Montgomeryshire Wildlife Trust's Dyfi reserve. How amazing to be able to see into the nest of such a rare and beautiful bird! The best part is that we can keep up to date with how they're getting on at their website (www.montwt.co.uk They've already grown so quickly.

What was your favourite bit?

Springwatch is back - yay!

Did anyone else watch last night? We badgers were the stars of the show! I can't wait to find out if they'll show up again on tonight's show.

I'm going to keep an eye on the webcams to see what happens during the day. Looks like the redstart chicks won't be there for long!

Thank you for the kind offers everyone - managed to get that thorn out in the end and I feel much better. It got me thinking about hedgehogs though, and I found this awesome game!

It's by the Devon Wildlife Trust and it's all about hedgehogs. You have to help Harry the Hedgehog avoid dangers in the garden and find the things he needs. I've learned loads of things I didn't know about them.

I love the music too!

Ouch!

That'll teach me to go snuffling about in the undergrowth without looking where I'm going. I just stuck my nose straight into a hidden bramble patch and jabbed it on a thorn. I feel like I've just wrestled with a hedgehog!

Can anyone help me pull out the splinter? My poor, sensitive little nose!

Hi everyone - are you enjoying some time off school at the moment? We badgers are lucky because we don't have to go, but my friend Solar is loving the chance to spend some time outdoors.

He came visit my sett the other day and brought this photograph with him. He wasn't sure what it was so we asked Beebee about it. It's called a lily beetle and likes to munch gardener's plants.

I think it's got a naughty look on its on its face! What do you think we should name it? Solar suggested 'Nibbler' but I'm voting for 'The Destroyer'. Anyone got any other ideas?

    Last night I was looking out my bedroom window and I saw a Fox nipping past .It was at 11:00 and it had a big bushy tail.

    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)
