Much better. These sticky little burr thingies keep getting stuck in my fur! Good thing I've got long claws and sharp teeth to get them out with.

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!
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!
