Catch up with Badger's nature adventures here every week.
This is AWESOME! Check out my certificate everyone. Thank you, Swiftafa!
And welcome to the wild bunch Wallabu and Swanita - I'm sure you'll fit right in here! We love to hear about your wildlife posters and badger questions. I do go into town sometimes, Wallabu, but I don't like traffic very much so I tend to stick to the quieter bits. Lorries are scary!
I've been out and about picking blackberries too - they're really yummy! We badgers like a bit of something sweet every now and again, although I'm not so sure about the prickles. My sensitive nose gets quite a scratching!
Next time you go foraging, why not leave the spares out in the garden for a hungry badger to find? I don't even mind if they're squishy and grubby - any insects living on them is a bonus for me!
Wrenicca - lots of badgers are out and about at the moment so keep an eye out as it starts to get dark. We are busy making the most of the last of the summer foods while it's still warm and light, and lots of this year's youngsters are starting to roam about.
Birdfair was awesome! I had a special Birdfair spotting sheet that I took around with me and managed to tick everything off, including an osprey, a man with a beard and someone off the telly! I saw Chris Packham, Nick Baker and David Lindo the Urban Birder. I was too shy to say hello though...
I love your certificate idea, Swiftafa! Chris must have really liked it too to display it with his photos on his stand. Poo Expert - tee hee!
Did you know that the Wildlife Trusts' stand got some certificates of its own too? We won 'Best In Show' and 'Best Conservation' stand awards! I think the judges must have liked our garden shed cinema and cool games, not to mention all the free sweets and goodies...
Alright, maybe I was fibbing a bit about Scottish wildcats wearng kilts, but wouldn't that be cool? I think this guy would look great in a bit of tartan, what do you think?
You all sound like you've been getting out and about lots lately and doing fun activities. I'm really looking forward to Birdfair at the weekend - it will be the first time I've been for a trip away from my sett for ages! Come and say hello if you're going and make sure you have a go at some of the amazing games and competitions on The Wildlife Trusts' stand!
Hee hee - you guys are awesome!
I love your quiz, Buzzyades, and thank you for writing to me lots. I think I would answer mostly C's, but I do spend time indoors to write my blog!
Hedgeina's dolphin pictures are amazing too. I bet you were really excited to see them. I know I would be! You're all spotting lots of butterflies, bees, hornets and foxes, and asking lots of interesting wildlife questions too.
Why is a Scottish Wildcat not called a European Wildcat, Foxonis? I think it's because they have a different accent to their European cousins and wear teeny tiny kilts when no one's looking.
I have never seen lizards here so rare to find them amazing!
if you see lizards in the uk then you are one of the lucky ones because they are called rare english lizard my cats have caught some before and i rescued it!!!!!!!!!! yippee
Not long a go we had hedgehogs in our garden. We first saw one when my mum was garden, it was curled up sleeping. Next we saw one out of the window at night walking along the grass. They are really nice animals and we are hoping for some more this year. Lets hope we do!!!!!!!

hi . garden very quiet today after yesterday`s sparrowhwak eating a pigeon. just seen a couple of blackbirds and heard robin. but nothing else. . the neat pile of pigeon feathers are still where the sparrowhawk left them but the remains of the pigeon have gone . maybe he came back later for it or something else took it . wasnt much left . suffering from a rotten cold so staying in . here comes my cat so will go now and let him in .
