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!

Mushrooms! Mushrooms everywhere!

Have you seen any amazing toadstools? So far I've found red ones with spots, gooey ones that melt into sludge, smelly ones that are all sticky and huge spongey ones under the trees.

Fungi is fantastic!

Mmmm - delicious blackberries!

They're all over the place at the moment and I've been tucking in. You should see my nose, it's gone purple with all the juice.

Hope I don't get a tummy ache...

Saw my first flock of geese of the year yesterday evening. They were flying in a giant V-shape across the sky, honking all the way.

Do you think that means that autumn is almost here?

Well done to everyone who has signed our Petition Fish so far - you're doing your bit to help save our seas! I've been getting all my badger friends to sign it too (although some of them need a bit of help typing their name on the keyboard).

And to all you sunflower growers out there - don't forget to send in your entries for your chance to win a bird feeding kit. You just need to take a picture of yourself next to your sunflower and send it in with its measurements to watchcomps@wildlifetrusts.org

Good luck!

    once I went for a walk and there was some spikes coming out of the snow, i went closer to the ball of spikes and found out it was a dead baby hedgehog.

    Hi all, I really want to go to richmond park in London to see deer and parakeets. Yes, the things that you least expected to find in London are in an urban park! If I see a deer then I won't have to go to Scotland to look for one and parakeets, well, they're just parakeets! I also want to see a London bird of prey, either Sparrow hawk or Perrigen falcon. I saw a Perrigen falcon on deadly 360 a few years ago, so that made me want to see one! London wildlife, you think, may be just the old pigeon but NO! And NOT exotic african animals that have escaped from London zoo. Birds of prey, fresh water fish, deer, exotic parrots and much, much more. Even BATS! Yes, BATS! No, I'm not joking about any of this! So you may want to come to London and stare at tigers in a zoo enclosure. But there's a deeper significance to the wildlife in London, you just have to look.....

    Hi, A few days ago me and my family went on a country walk. I'm surprised we didn't spot more Wildlife! We only spotted a (yet another) Grey Squirrel. My sister saw a millipede but only she saw it, because when the rest of us had turned around it was gone. She's only 6, so I can see why she's proud of it. I said millipedes were really rare.

    hi all . last night a hedgehog was snuffling on the lawn looking for food . it wasnt a full size animal and should have been hibernating. i gave him some cat food and watched him eat it just outside the window. when i looked again the cat food was gone and so had he . has anyone else seen hedgehogs in their garden?

    Hi everyone, a few days ago we went on a walk around some lakes and along a canal. We saw some great crested grebes in their winter plumage and some goldeneyes. I went on this walk at the same time last year and saw a goldeneye too but this year I saw two. There were lots of tufted ducks as well. It was really good!!
