If you've been lucky enough to come to Broney's Picnic with your teddy bear you'll have met our cheeky bear, Broney. Read on to see where he is and what he's doing this season. Click on the pictures below to find out what Broney senses this season.
Broney is sitting amongst the spring Crocuses trying to spot some birds with his binoculars. He is using his camouflage tent as a bird hide and is wearing his camouflage body warmer so that the birds will not see him and will not be scared away. Little does he know that a Greenfinch is perched right behind his head, wondering what he is doing!
