Alright, maybe I was fibbing a bit about Scottish wildcats wearng kilts, but wouldn't that be cool? I think this guy would look great in a bit of tartan, what do you think?

You all sound like you've been getting out and about lots lately and doing fun activities. I'm really looking forward to Birdfair at the weekend - it will be the first time I've been for a trip away from my sett for ages! Come and say hello if you're going and make sure you have a go at some of the amazing games and competitions on The Wildlife Trusts' stand!

Hee hee - you guys are awesome!

I love your quiz, Buzzyades, and thank you for writing to me lots. I think I would answer mostly C's, but I do spend time indoors to write my blog!

Hedgeina's dolphin pictures are amazing too. I bet you were really excited to see them. I know I would be! You're all spotting lots of butterflies, bees, hornets and foxes, and asking lots of interesting wildlife questions too.

Why is a Scottish Wildcat not called a European Wildcat, Foxonis? I think it's because they have a different accent to their European cousins and wear teeny tiny kilts when no one's looking.

I like peacock butterflies too, Sealoles. They're very pretty. And it sounds like Buzzyades will see lots of really exotic types when visiting the butterfly park. I'd love to go to one, escpecially if I could see a chrysalis hatching!

Swiftafa is off to BirdFair later this month too - sometimes even I go there! It's a great place to meet lots of other wildlife enthusiasts and have a go at cool nature activities. I've done pond dipping there before and watched how scientists put special rings on birds to help find out more about them, just like this song thrush I saw.

Perhaps I'll sneak along again this year!

It makes the ground really soft.

And do you know what comes out when the soil is lovely and moist?

Delicious, juicy minibeasts!

Hello everyone! Look what I've found...

It's a cinnabar moth. I asked Beebee to identify it for me from a photograph I took the other day. Isn't it pretty? It's funny too - Finchalla told us about seeing a cinnabar caterpillar the other day, and then this turns up!

It got me thinking and I did a bit of research. I looked in some nature books and found out that the reason there are lots of cinnabars about is because their favourite food plant - ragwort - is all over the place at the moment. The moths lay their eggs on it and stripey black and orange caterpillars hatch out to munch the plant. They're easy to spot too - just look for bright yellow flowers on tall plants.

Watch out though, ragwort is poisonous!
