*YAWN*

Is winter over yet? I find it hard to stay wide awake and active at this time of year. I don't like leaving my warm bed!

Wake me up when the spring flowers start popping up.

Check out this cute video! There's no sound, but can you guess what noise this little fella is making?

Thank you for sharing it with us, Surrey Wildlife Trust!

There are loads of goldfinches visiting my bird feeders at the moment. They love the tiny seeds I put out for them and make a lovely twittery noise as they gather.

They're eating me out of house and home!

We badgers aim to please, Foxalas! We're not suprised that humans are always so delighted to see us - we are incredibly impressive beasts.

Need a good hedgehog activity, Hedgeina? I read about a good one in the Autumn issue of Wildlife Watch magazine.

Make Your Own Animal Footprint Trap
Fill a low-sided tray with damp sand, smooth it our flat and put it in a likely place outside. Put a bowl of cat or dog food in the middle and leave it overnight, then come back and see if it's had any visitors. I tried it and got cat and squirrel footprints!

    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.

    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!

    Yesterday, when I was walking to school with my friend, she saw a small green frog on the pavement and my friends mum said it was probably coming to nest in a pond near by!

    I really want to see a badger. Where is the best place to spot one and what time too?
