Snow in the UK

After my visit to Antartica it was strange to wake up and find that the beach was covered in snow.
This time of the year the vegetated shingle plants are dormant beneath the shingle waiting for the warmer weather before they sprout into life.

I visited by sister Bella today. She has her own weblog about freshwater habitats and the importance of using water wisely.
Bella played a trick on me and later we had a snow ball fight - you will have to check out her weblog to find out what happened.

Bye for now

Ed returns from Antarctica

Hi all

Well I am back from Antarctica and had an amazing time at the end of the world with Chris and Monique. Lots of work top do preparing all the photographs of my adventures, so while you are waiting, here is a pictures to give you a flavour of my adventures.
Not only was it great to benefit from their experience and knowledge, they also looked after me. Antarctic is a huge place, stunningly beautiful but also a bit scary especially for a small bear.
Even the huge ship we were on was tiny compared to the ocean and icy landscape.

Come back soon and you will find out more about my Antarctic adventure and some of the amazing wildlife I encountered as well from seals and whales to ocean birds to penguins.

More about my Antarctic Adventures soon

Bye for now
