Hi everyone - are you enjoying some time off school at the moment? We badgers are lucky because we don't have to go, but my friend Solar is loving the chance to spend some time outdoors.

He came visit my sett the other day and brought this photograph with him. He wasn't sure what it was so we asked Beebee about it. It's called a lily beetle and likes to munch gardener's plants.

I think it's got a naughty look on its on its face! What do you think we should name it? Solar suggested 'Nibbler' but I'm voting for 'The Destroyer'. Anyone got any other ideas?

Guess what I've been snuffling today? Hedgehog poo!

I know humans don't really like looking at poo very much (apart from Chris Packham of course), but I think it's really interesting. Not only does it mean that the hedgehogs near me are out and about again, but I could also have a good look at what they've been eating for lunch!

No shiny beetle bits in there yet - maybe it needs to get a bit warmer before there's lots of them around to eat? I'll report back if I discover any more interesting piles.

Cool fox photo, Foxor! I bet you were excited to see him in your garden.

I really like foxes, unless they're pawing around near my sett. We badgers are quite territorial you see, and foxes have a naughty habit of using our lovely homes as dens instead of digging out their own. A bit rude if you ask me.

I like to think of them a bit like lions or tigers. Amazing to watch, but you wouldn't want one in your bed!

Wow, isn't it amazing how quickly spring gets going once it starts? It seems like only yesterday that I saw the first snowdrops, yet all of a sudden there are daffodils and wood anemones (like these ones), travelling toads, arriving birds and butterflies everywhere!

You've been spotting loads of stuff too - tawny owls calling, frogspawn, ladybirds... Next it will be bluebells! I can't wait. It's always my favourite time of the year and a chance to go out and take pictures in the sunshine.

Foxor has also been out looking for me and my badger friends. Leave us some peanuts if you like...

Guess what I heard today! My first birdy sign of spring - a chiffchaff!

I like chiffchaffs because they're easy to identify. They're hard to see in the tree tops and their creamy brown feathers help them to blend into their surroundings, but they sing nice and loudly.

So what do they sound like? That's easy. They sing their name!
