Wow Swiftafa - a peregrine! I would love to see one! They're so fast and deadly. I've heard they're starting to live in our towns and cities again so maybe they'll be a common sight soon.

I have seen some redwings and fieldfares though. They're all tucking into apples in an old orchard near my sett. I like to go there sometimes and munch on the fallen fruit, but the birds don't like me much. They make a terrible racket when they see me coming!

I had a look at your rabbit, Barnyifa. So cute! Make sure you give him a cuddle from me.

I have been on the perfect adventure for badgers - a Fungal Foray! I got to use my well-trained nose to snuffle about in the undergrowth (one of my favourite pass times) but this time to help science.

I followed a group of fungi experts who were collecting all kinds of mushroom and mould so that they could identify them and find out what was living in the wood. I rooted up lots of different types - have a look at my basket!

Some fungi can be poisonous of course, so I didn't eat any. I did get to eat lots of other things instead - minibeasts live in the leaf litter too!

Thanks Beebeeelas and everyone for the tips - here it is! What do you think? I have to confess that I did get a little bit of help from my friends in the Wildlife Watch gang...

And well done Swanita for completing the fun run on Halloween and helping to raise money for The Wildlife Trusts. I hope you had a good day. Did you dress up as anything? All my trick-or-treat goodies got eaten up, but mainly by my other badger friends. No humans came to my sett for them for some reason...

Guess what - I've got a pumpkin to carve!

I'm going to spend all night tonight designing and carving my pumpkin into something cool. My badger claws should be perfect for the job. I'll take a photograph to show you all next week - are you going to make one too?

I've even collected lots of goodies to offer to any trick-or-treaters that call. It will be hard to give them away, but I suppose it's tradition! I've got slippery earthworms, juicy grubs, fat slugs and crunchy beetles - what more could you ask for! Would you like some?

    We have lots of cats near our house and they come into my garden but we have a light in the garden and it lights up when something or someone comes nar it.The cats go under it and I think it scares my mum!

    I saw a few scrapes and some torn out fur on the grass in a local park yesterday, obviously rabbits fighting. What would they be fighting about, though, at this time of year? My teacher said he's known them to have kittens as late as December in a wool bale, how territorial are the bucks though? (We human does are generally more civilised, but I don't have any rabbit friends)
