Me, my cousin and my Grandad went Cray fishing at a river at Shipka and found a big pool. There were lots of Cray fish there. We went down to the pool and I said,  "give me a worm!" so Grandad threw me the whole bucket, dropped the worms and they all fell out! After that, I had to go and look for some more.  I found a gigantic worm and put it on the hook.  With this worm, I caught a small Cray fish but put it back. Then I got closer to the water and this huge Cray fish came out to nibble my toe.


We caught five bigger cray fish using a smaller one for bait. We cooked them, they were so tasty. I loved how when you cook them they turn bright red. The cray fish we caught were European Cray fish.

Me and my dad went fishing in Enina at the three lakes.We went to the first one which was the smallest of the three. The wildlife there was breathtaking - we saw loads of terrapins and grass snakes. Wildlife is one of my passions. We got to see a whole family of terrapins! There was a little baby trying to get on a car tire it was really funny, the baby was only as big as my thumb. The weather was calm and sunny. I was using  worms for bait and I only got one bite. But i didn't even catch a fish :(  I'm going to use this blog to keep a record of my fishing trips.

Camping In The Mountains

Me and my dad went to the Uzana Fest in the Stara Planina mountains in Bulgaria. We decided to take the off road track to the Fest but unfortunately we got lost. We found ourselves on the grassy peak of the mountains. The view was astonishing, there were loads of wild plants and grasshoppers. Trying to find our way we drove up a very steep track.  I knew straight away it was the wrong way but my dad went for it and guess  what, I was right, it was the wrong way. So we had to go back down the steep track  and it was terrifying but we made it. Whilst trying to find the right way we saw a few different raptors, Booted Eagle and two Buzzards.

   We finaly arrived at the fest it was pretty cool. There were loads of people there selling all kinds of stuff like books, electric bikes, honey and food. We brought plants and books for sale. We sold quite a few  and the best seller was the Honeysuckle. My dad went to set up the tent and left me to sell the plants.

Our Books And Plants

In the evening  there was live music and performance which was really cool, i loved the drummer in the band and there were some funny performers.

The fest was over so we packed up and went home. On the way back we stopped at this place were there tall yellow flowers, they looked like sun flowers.  We found a stream there and we saw 7 or 8 baby Fire Salamanders, they were cool.  The juveniles are black and live in the water, the adults are black and have yellow spots on them and they live in the forest.

Slow Worms At The Sutton Ecology Center

I went out with my family to the Sutton Ecology Center. It was a beautiful place and it had this huge pond with  loads of newts and baby frogs. The type of newts i found in the pond were common newts.

Common Newt
As we walked  around the garden  i found an old mat, i lifted it up and discovered a juvenile Slow worm.  Adult Slow worms are black and brown but the juveniles are black and silver. They  have a black tongue  and they look a lot like snakes but they are actually  lizards without legs.

Slow Worms
In the woodland area I found a log pile and i lifted up one of the logs and underneath it there was a Common Toad. It  was very small and the colouration of the Toad was orange and brown. Me and my mum  lifted  up another log,  under it there was a Stag Beetle. I picked up the Stag Beetle to have a closer look and it pinched me so i put it back. We found some more  mats and underneath one of them there were 4 Slow Worms. Whilst handling the slow worms one of them up sprayed something that smelt terrible, perhaps it was a defense mechanism. It was time to go,  I didn't want to go but I had to. The next day I went there again with my uncle Pete.

Fossil Hunting

Me and my family went fossil hunting. on a  beach  called the Warren in Kent. As soon as we got there we found loads of Ammonites. These fossils are around 20 million years old.

An Ammonite

My Grandad cooked some amazing  prawns with garlic on the beach, they were really tasty. After lunch we went to have a paddle in the pools. Whilst paddling I felt some thing under my foot so I put my hand down to find out what it was and when I lifted it up I had a Plaice .It was so amazing, it looked like sand and was about the size of my little finger.  I found another 20 of them and we collected  them in a frying pan. I also found shrimps and crabs, the shrimp also had sand  patterns and colours. The crabs were small and big, one of them was as small as my finger nail. I lifted up a rock and under the rock there was a rock fish it was very camouflage.

 At the end of the day my Mum lost my Grandma's spoon but finally she found it buried in the sand. I had a great day.

Camping at Brighton

 During my time in England i went camping in a place called Stoneywish near Brighton with my mum, my brother and some friends of ours we stayed in our friends tent. It was a really big bell tent that had a chimney.

The camp site was great there were loads of kids around, me and my bro asked the other kids if we could play with them and they said yes. We went in their really cool  base it was great because  it was camouflaged from the adults. After an hour or two some teenagers came in the base and were mean and horrible to us. They were pushing us around and swearing at us because they wanted us to get out. This made me very cross and unhappy so i pushed one of the teenagers. In the end we decided to go and find a different base. We found a base but it was nothing compared to the other one but it was still a base.After we got settled the teenagers came again and they threw one of our chairs over the fence were there was a big bull. It got dark so we had to go to our tents. Back at the tent we roasted marshmallows on the fire they were great, after that we went to bed.

The next morning we planned to have war with those teenagers. We threw mud balls at them and they threw mud balls back at us but we won. In the end  they said sorry for being mean. After that we had to go home.
