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.

This is an animal that my dad spotted in the woods about a week ago. I went back with him to the wood where he saw it, but we couldn't spot it. He gave me the photographs and said I had to work out what it was.

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.

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.
