Snuffle snuffle

Eek! I've got a spooky story to tell you!

I was snuffling about outside my sett the other night, minding my own business, when I heard a weird noise in the undergrowth. It was sort of grunty sound with lots of loud sniffing and scurrying going on.

I froze thinking some strange woodland monster was hunting me from the bushes. I couldn't see a thing. Was I about to get eaten?

Just when I'd decided to run away, a couple of small, prickly objects came trotting towards me, arguing the whole way. They didn't even notice me as they hurried past - they were too busy with each other!

It was two hedgehogs making friends (or trying to). They scared me half to death!

It's funny that Ottero found a toad wandering about in a house - I've had a couple hopping down into my sett recently! I wonder if they like the nice dark and earthy tunnels I've dug.

A word of warning for you though. Don't try to eat toads - they go all foamy and they taste awful!

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!

www.devonwildlifetrust.org/help-the-hog-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!
