I've explained why here. There's plenty of past posts to read, though - hope you enjoy them !

How old was George ?


George is a roe buck skeleton that I found in the woods near the Roman fort a few weeks ago. When we collected the bones we found we had almost a complete skeleton, which is great. When I find bones, I try to guess how old the animal was when it died. This is how I worked out how old George was.

Five great new bone finds


The past week has been brilliant for finding bones, and dad and I found something out which has really helped with watching the roe deer near the village. The picture above is of a young roe buck that we saw out grazing on a walk today. Here are some of the other great things I have discovered in the last seven days.

The RSPB Big Garden Birdwatch


Last weekend I took part in the Big Garden Birdwatch for the RSPB. I had to see what birds landed in my garden, and write down the most I saw at one time.

In my garden is a bird table with peanuts, sunflower seeds and fat balls. We get a quite a lot of birds, but they might get scared off by all the cats in the village. Sometimes my cats bring in birds they have caught.
