Catch up with Badger's nature adventures here every week.
Look what I spotted on one of my wildlife walks recently - a funny coloured sparrow!
I did a bit of research with my friends to find out more about birds with unusual feathers and found out that it can be quite common in some birds. Did you know you can even get really pale badgers?
There are lots of baby birds bouncing around outside my sett at the moment. They're very noisy!
Their little wings flutter like mad and their mouths open big and wide when they're begging to be fed. I wonder if I should give that a try and see if someone will come along and feed me...?
I've been investigating my local ponds this week and guess what I've seen? Loads and loads of frog spawn!
I was amazed to see all the different colours frogs come in too. I listened out for calling frogs and tip-toed up to the edge of one particular water hole to find a few frogs still spawning. The smaller males were holding on tight to their mates (most of which didn't look too impressed) which made it easy to compare them. Some were quite red in colour!
Have any of you got frogs in your garden ponds?
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...
I saw lots of birds in the park
Well I don't know whether these are spring flowers but I've seen a few daffodils around my house Swiftafa. Well also I went into town through Farnham Park and I wasn't on the look out or anything and I probably missed some but I didn't find any. Maybe next time I go into town I'll be looking for them and I might see some. Thanks for the advice Swiftafa.
hi , who`s seen first signs of spring? i have seen lots of snowdrops in our church grounds and in gardens near my home . Chaffuea, try looking in gardens for snowdrops or in your local park. theres a lot around so happy spotting. you dont need to live near snow. i`ve seen purple and orange crocuses in gardens and grape hyacinth too. we have daisies and lesser celandines on the lawns of our flats. i saw my first honey bee last sunday at sandwell park farm and on tuesday i saw a poor bumble bee almost dead in a street nearby. birdsong is changing too especially the robin. yipeeee! spring is a comin! Cloakilus try going out at dusk to see badgers find a place to hide , wrap up warm and wait! take someone with you. be patient --you may be lucky. best places are woodland as well as some gardens. let me know if you see one cos i havent seen one in the wild yet
I can't seem to find any snow drops anywhere and I don't live near snow.
I have found some snowdrops in my back garden and i put them in my wildlife watchers handbook.
Snow drops are popping up all over the place at our house too.
I've never actually seen a Kingfisher in real life! I wish I was there with you!
i love badgers blog its soooooooooooo intresting
This is kind of about wildlife but it's not totally about wildlife! Basically, today we had a letter (which people could choose whether they could have one or not) and as soon as they mentioned wildlife I was extremely interested but I could see by other peoples faces that they weren't interested. (The letter was about this Forest Ranger Competition at Alice Holt.) As I've told you nobody was much interested except me but as soon as the teacher explained that the prize would be a £100 voucher for go ape adventure and a two night stay on one of 15 Camping in the forest sites almost everybody wanted it. I know this sounds silly but they did only want it because of the prize, but luckily I wanted it because it was about wildlife but I've got to admit I was attracted by the prize to be honest!
Hi, today when I was at school my teacher (whilst during maths) thought she saw a Woodpecker but it was actually a Jay on our school field! Then she said that you do find quite a few funny birds coming onto our field!
