We badgers aim to please, Foxalas! We're not suprised that humans are always so delighted to see us - we are incredibly impressive beasts.

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?

    Don't panic, it takes ages for the frogspawn to change into frogs. When the weather gets warmer look out for tadpoles where the frogspawn is. I've seen lots of newts in my pond recently but their eggs are more hidden away than frogspawn.

    A couple of months ago we had about MILLIONS (exaggerating) of frogspawn! But now unfortunately we have only seen round about two actual frogs and a toad that my dad tried to convince that the pond is a good place. It's been a bit dull after that, until I was only round about 2 metres away from a robin with about 3 worms in it's mouth!

    My mum's just told me that she might not be able to get any frogs born now but she will try but it is such a disappointment.

    My mum said a few days ago, well ages ago so now I'm not so sure, that we are going to get some frogs born in our pond but it doesn't seem like she's got round to doing it so I don't think that we will get any but it was worth mentioning. Also my dad says that we might be allowed a vegetable patch in our garden but we haven't got round to doing that either.

    I do hope you get some dry wether soon. My wether has been just the same i'm afraid.
