Explore life beneath the waves around Britain with Benny the Blenny
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!

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.
