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!

I've got a new friend to introduce you all to! His name is Bernard the Gurnard and he's a fish. I've been following him on Twitter and Facebook because he's on a very special mission to protect the UK's seas.

He wants everyone to sign a scale on a petition fish to show their support for Marine Protected Areas - safe places where fish and other marine animals can live and grow.

You can find out more about Bernard and his quest on The Wildlife Trust website. Watch the cool video all about him and sign a scale while you're there!

    hey , had a great time last saturday at moseley bog and joy`s wood reserve near birmingham as the wildlife trust had a celebration of spring event on there. we went on a walk with a guide and saw lots of plants not seen before and i heard my first chiffchaff. the reserve is ancient and goes back before the dinos were around and i was given a stone from the triassic area which was once used by the bronze age people in heating up water for a bronze age sauna! the stone had cracks in it due to the heat and was told i may have been the first person to pick it up since the bronze age people had it! nice thought . when i got home i cleaned it up and put it in my fossil box. moseley bog is well worth a visit for wildlife and archaeology. joy`s wood got its name from a person called joy fifer who campaigned to save the area. i`ve seen lots of bees , bumble bees , 2 butterflies, lots of wild flowers and buds on trees over the last few weeks . cant wait for springwatch to come back on telly!

    sounds very interesting Magoma! I've never seen a Golden eye before maybe I'll look on Google and find some things out about it! It sounds rare but it probably isn't if there are lots of them.

    I've seen lots of birds in Farnham Park as well Loonaga. Also what type of birds did you see? I'm just wandering because it would be exciting if it was some kind of rare bird wouldn't it!
