Captain Jay and his crew welcome you aboard.

0:01:190:01:22

ALL: Aye aye, Captain!

0:01:220:01:25

-Today we are looking for treasure.

-Can I do the register today?

0:01:250:01:29

Arr, no, little cabin boy.

0:01:290:01:32

It's always the captain who takes the register.

0:01:320:01:35

Cabin boy? I am NOT a boy!

0:01:350:01:37

Fine, you can be my first mate.

0:01:370:01:40

-That's better, I'd like to be your mate.

-Are all my crew aboard?

0:01:400:01:45

0:01:450:01:47

0:01:470:01:50

Aye aye, Captain!

0:01:500:01:51

Very good, first mate. Second Mate Ant.

0:02:300:02:34

A-harr!

0:02:340:02:36

-Shall we do the Green Balloon Club chant?

-ALL: Aye aye!

0:02:360:02:41

ALL: We love animals, plants and birds

0:02:460:02:49

We love snails and slugs

0:02:490:02:52

Large and small, we love them all And we never, ever step on bugs

0:02:520:02:56

Cos we are the Green Balloon Club!

0:02:560:03:00

So, Sky...where are we heading for the gold?

0:03:000:03:04

I never said we were looking for gold.

0:03:040:03:06

-But you said we were going on a treasure hunt.

-Yes, we are.

0:03:060:03:10

-We're looking for nature's treasures.

-Great!

0:03:100:03:13

-We can be nature pirates. Arr!

-Arr!

-Nature's pirates,

0:03:130:03:17

looking for nature's treasure!

0:03:170:03:19

I think I spy some.

0:03:200:03:21

Treasure! Do you see treasure?

0:03:210:03:24

No! I spy some Green Balloon Club members.

0:03:240:03:27

Oh, yes!

0:03:270:03:28

ALL: Hello!

0:03:280:03:30

BOTH: Hello!

0:03:300:03:32

ALL: Hello!

0:03:320:03:34

Today, we're going to show you what treasure can be found in trees.

0:03:340:03:39

Let's go and see what we can find!

0:03:390:03:42

This is a sweet chestnut tree.

0:03:500:03:54

It's got a long leaf.

0:03:540:03:56

The sweet chestnuts fall off this tree in their spiky round cases.

0:03:570:04:03

They're delicious when you roast them.

0:04:030:04:06

It's like a hedgehog. It isn't ready yet.

0:04:060:04:11

It didn't broke yet.

0:04:130:04:16

It's spiky and really, really prickly.

0:04:170:04:21

I found a lime tree.

0:04:280:04:30

When the seeds spin down the tree, they look like little helicopters.

0:04:300:04:37

Lots of seed pods spin off the tree,

0:04:370:04:40

and the wind blows them a long way.

0:04:400:04:44

Then lots more lime trees grow.

0:04:440:04:47

I wonder if we can spot any more treasure.

0:04:470:04:51

Oh, look, it's the oak tree.

0:04:510:04:54

This tree has leaves with wavy edges.

0:04:540:04:58

The nut of the oak tree is called an acorn.

0:04:580:05:03

These oak galls appear on the nuts.

0:05:030:05:06

Inside this is a little grub,

0:05:060:05:09

which will eat the insides and finally turn into a wasp.

0:05:090:05:15

These are the needles from a Scots pine.

0:05:190:05:23

That means there must be some pine cones around here.

0:05:230:05:27

The pine cone opens up to release the seeds.

0:05:270:05:34

We are collecting them to make decorations.

0:05:340:05:38

Look, I found an ash tree.

0:05:430:05:46

The seeds of an ash tree are called keys.

0:05:460:05:51

That's because they look like bunches of keys.

0:05:510:05:55

They stay on the tree in the winter, and fall in the spring.

0:05:550:06:00

So, you can find lots of treasures on trees.

0:06:000:06:04

We hope you will enjoy looking for them.

0:06:040:06:07

ALL: Bye!

0:06:070:06:10

ALL: Bye!

0:06:100:06:12

You know, Sky, these tree seeds are better than treasure!

0:06:120:06:16

How do you mean, Lily-Rose?

0:06:160:06:18

Well, you hide treasure in the ground and it just stays there,

0:06:180:06:22

but you hide tree seeds in the ground and they grow

0:06:220:06:25

-into a big, beautiful tree.

-That's right, Lily-Rose!

0:06:250:06:29

-So nature's treasures are the best, aren't they?

-Yes.

0:06:290:06:33

Look what I found, Captain Jay.

0:06:330:06:35

It's a clue.

0:06:350:06:37

Good work, Second Mate Ant.

0:06:370:06:39

What does it say?

0:06:410:06:42

"You can search the balloon from roof to floor,

0:06:430:06:47

"but you'll find the treasure outside the door."

0:06:470:06:50

The trap door!

0:06:500:06:53

Yes!

0:06:530:06:54

Look what I found, Lily-Rose. It's a treasure for you.

0:06:580:07:02

What is it?

0:07:020:07:04

Before you open it, Lily-Rose,

0:07:040:07:06

there's a special message for you from Jelly.

0:07:060:07:10

Hello, Lily-Rose!

0:07:110:07:13

Ha-ha, ha. Here is a little treasure for you.

0:07:130:07:16

You see, back in Springwatch,

0:07:160:07:18

Jackson planted a conker,

0:07:180:07:20

and it started to grow into a teeny-weeny little tiny tree.

0:07:200:07:24

And they loved it so much, and then in Autumnwatch,

0:07:240:07:28

he gave it to me as a present! Yes!

0:07:280:07:31

And I've been looking after it very carefully.

0:07:310:07:35

But now, I'm going to give it to you,

0:07:350:07:37

because you love all plants, don't you, Lily-Rose?

0:07:370:07:41

Yes. It can be yours for ever and ever.

0:07:410:07:44

Your own little conker tree.

0:07:440:07:47

ALL: Open it, open it, Lily-Rose!

0:07:470:07:50

Wow, my very own tree treasure! Thanks, Jelly!

0:08:020:08:06

Brilliant!

0:08:060:08:08

-I love this treasure hunt!

-He-he!

0:08:080:08:10

-Treasure aboard!

-There's Jelly again!

0:08:110:08:15

I wonder if she's found more treasure for us.

0:08:150:08:18

Ha, glad you liked it, Lily-Rose!

0:08:240:08:27

Ahem! Hmm.

0:08:270:08:29

This is special reporter, Pirate Jelly,

0:08:290:08:32

reporting for Green Balloon Club!

0:08:320:08:35

And now you've got your treasure,

0:08:350:08:37

it's time for me to get some treasure of my own.

0:08:370:08:40

But not just any treasure - I'm talking about seaside treasure!

0:08:400:08:45

Ah! LAND AHOY!

0:08:450:08:47

JELLY SINGS TO HERSELF

0:08:490:08:52

Ha-ha! Hello, Pirate Joseph. Hello, Pirate Theo.

0:08:530:08:56

I am Pirate Jelly, and I'm looking for some seaside treasure.

0:08:560:09:00

-You pirates look like you can help me.

-Ooh arr.

-Ooh arr!

0:09:000:09:05

Come on then, me hearties! We're gonna look for treasure.

0:09:050:09:09

-Oh! What have you got there?

-It's a message in a bottle.

0:09:090:09:13

Ah! A message in a bottle? What does it say? Let's have a look!

0:09:130:09:17

-It's a pirate map.

-A pirate treasure map!

0:09:170:09:20

Let's go and look for the treasure.

0:09:200:09:23

Let's go to the rock pools.

0:09:230:09:25

And bring the bottle, so we can recycle it later. Come on!

0:09:250:09:29

Ah, shiver me timbers!

0:09:300:09:32

It's a rock pool. Have we got any treasures in here?

0:09:320:09:36

Yeah, look. There's a starfish.

0:09:360:09:39

Ah! Oh, yes. Look at him.

0:09:390:09:41

-Is it a cushion starfish?

-Yeah, when they bring their points in.

0:09:410:09:47

Ah! Yes, yes! It's a crab, we can see a crab in the water!

0:09:470:09:51

Ha, look at him creeping around. Can you pick him up, Theo?

0:09:510:09:56

-Got it.

-Ah, yes! Oh, look at him.

0:09:560:09:59

He's so sweet.

0:09:590:10:01

You must be careful of his claws -

0:10:010:10:03

they look like they're going to pinch you. Put him back, now.

0:10:030:10:07

Yes, put him back, Joseph.

0:10:070:10:10

Is there anything in the rock pool

0:10:100:10:12

-we can put in our treasure bucket?

-There's a nice pebble down there.

0:10:120:10:18

Look at the stone! Yes, put that in. Good work!

0:10:180:10:21

Right, what's next on the map?

0:10:210:10:23

Erm...ah!

0:10:230:10:25

It's the middle of the beach. Come on then, let's go.

0:10:250:10:29

BOTH: Arr!

0:10:290:10:31

Erm, erm, er...

0:10:340:10:36

Hmm. I'm not seeing much around here other than just sand.

0:10:380:10:42

I think we might need these.

0:10:420:10:44

Oh, yes. Good thinking, pirates! Let's dig for treasure.

0:10:440:10:48

Dig, dig, dig! Off you go.

0:10:480:10:50

Oh, they are such clever pirates.

0:10:500:10:53

We found a stick.

0:10:530:10:56

Oh, a stick? No, no, I think it is some driftwood.

0:10:560:11:01

Keep digging! They're digging so well.

0:11:010:11:04

Oh, what is it, what have you found?

0:11:040:11:06

A shell!

0:11:060:11:07

Oh, a shell! Yes, that's very good. Put it in our treasure bucket.

0:11:070:11:12

They found a shell.

0:11:120:11:13

Ah! Oh! It says we need to go to the sea. Come on, pirates!

0:11:130:11:18

Let's go to the sea.

0:11:180:11:19

Aah! It is a pirate treasure chest,

0:11:230:11:26

washed up by the sea. Look, look, look! Ha-ha. Boys,

0:11:260:11:31

let's fill it up with our treasure!

0:11:310:11:33

Ah! Oh, look!

0:11:330:11:35

All our seaside treasure in the chest.

0:11:360:11:41

It's time for me to set sail now, so I'll say goodbye. Bye!

0:11:410:11:45

-BOTH: Bye!

-Bye!

0:11:450:11:47

This is special reporter Pirate Jelly

0:11:500:11:54

sailing the seven seas for the Green Balloon Club.

0:11:540:11:58

Back to you in the green balloon. Up, up and away!

0:11:580:12:02

Look, Skipper. There's some seaside treasures in our balloon!

0:12:080:12:12

It might be a trail!

0:12:120:12:14

Go find!

0:12:140:12:15

Ah, it's another clue!

0:12:300:12:32

Read it!

0:12:330:12:35

What does it say?

0:12:380:12:39

"I spy something, what can I see?

0:12:390:12:42

"There's a treasure hiding in the sea for me."

0:12:420:12:45

What does that mean?

0:12:450:12:46

Maybe we have to look out of the telescope!

0:12:460:12:49

That's a great idea.

0:12:490:12:51

Can you see anything?

0:12:510:12:53

Oh, yes! I spy a Green Balloon Club member.

0:12:540:12:57

Hello!

0:12:570:12:59

-It's Robert.

-BOTH: Hello!

0:12:590:13:02

Hello, I'm Robert.

0:13:020:13:04

And I'm going looking for my very special friend,

0:13:040:13:08

Sammy the seal. He often comes to see us when we're crabbing,

0:13:080:13:12

so I'll be taking my crabbing gear.

0:13:120:13:14

And I've been filming Sammy with my camera, so I'll take that too.

0:13:140:13:19

Come on, Mum!

0:13:190:13:21

The sea is just five minutes from my house.

0:13:240:13:27

I like to go down to the sea as much as possible, to spot Sammy.

0:13:270:13:31

Look, you can see the sea!

0:13:320:13:34

Come on, Mum!

0:13:340:13:36

Now we're here on the pontoon, and setting up for crabbing,

0:13:410:13:45

we just have to be patient now, and see if Sammy appears.

0:13:450:13:49

Sammy gets attracted by these scraps of bacon we use for crabbing,

0:13:510:13:56

which is funny because seals are supposed to eat fish, not meat!

0:13:560:14:00

Sammy likes both.

0:14:000:14:02

Where's Sammy? He came to see me yesterday,

0:14:020:14:05

but he's not coming to see me today.

0:14:050:14:08

I'm not sure where he is, so I've got to be pretty sharp-eyed.

0:14:090:14:13

Look, there he is!

0:14:170:14:18

Sammy the seal.

0:14:180:14:19

Sammy is very famous here on Mersea Island, where I live.

0:14:210:14:26

He's a very friendly seal.

0:14:260:14:28

The other day I was on my boat, and Sammy came alongside,

0:14:280:14:32

swimming up and down, dipping down.

0:14:320:14:36

Seals are wild animals, so it is very important not to get too close,

0:14:360:14:40

as they can bite. When Sammy swims near my boat, it's a real treat.

0:14:400:14:45

Seals can dive really deep, and they are really fast swimmers.

0:14:450:14:50

Their flippers, and webbed feet, help them to swim really fast.

0:14:500:14:56

I love Sammy's big black eyes.

0:14:590:15:02

They help him to see really well on land and under water.

0:15:020:15:07

With his snout and whiskers, I think he looks like a dog.

0:15:070:15:11

Seals bark just like dogs, too. BARKING

0:15:110:15:15

And, did you know that their babies are called pups?

0:15:150:15:19

Seals have a big fat layer of blubber.

0:15:190:15:22

This keeps them warm in the cold water,

0:15:220:15:25

and also it helps them to float.

0:15:250:15:27

Seals have been known to live for over 40 years.

0:15:270:15:31

So I still hope that I can come back when I'm older,

0:15:310:15:35

and see if Sammy the seal is still here.

0:15:350:15:37

Off he goes. Bye, Sammy!

0:15:370:15:39

I hope you've enjoyed meeting my friend, Sammy the seal. Bye!

0:15:390:15:45

That's great! Your very own seal. That's a real treasure.

0:15:450:15:50

Third Mate Cat! I've got some treasure here with your name on it.

0:15:500:15:54

It's a seal! My very own secret seal. It's lovely!

0:16:010:16:07

Hey, Captain Jay. A clue came through for you with the e-mails.

0:16:080:16:13

Let's see.

0:16:130:16:14

-I'm not feeling tired. Are you?

-No...

0:16:240:16:28

Tyre...

0:16:280:16:29

-Maybe it means car tyre!

-Yes!

0:16:300:16:32

This must be it!

0:16:350:16:37

A feather?

0:16:370:16:38

-D'you know what bird it's from?

-Hmm...

0:16:390:16:42

A chicken.

0:16:440:16:46

A chicken? A chicken.

0:16:460:16:49

Hey, who are you calling chicken?

0:16:500:16:52

Believe it or not,

0:16:520:16:54

the closest living relative to this fearsome dinosaur...

0:16:540:16:58

CLUCK-CLUCK!

0:16:580:17:01

..is the humble chicken!

0:17:010:17:03

Amazing! I'll never look at a chicken in the same way.

0:17:060:17:10

Captain Jay, there's some treasure here with your name on it.

0:17:100:17:14

-Can I open it?

-Yeah!

0:17:140:17:16

Wow!

0:17:220:17:23

It's dinosaur treasure!

0:17:230:17:25

And it's not just any dinosaur, it's a T-rex!

0:17:250:17:29

Otherwise known as a tyrannosaurus rex!

0:17:290:17:32

-Ooh(!)

-They're my favourite kind of dinosaur,

0:17:320:17:36

-because they're the ones that are related to chickens.

-Amazing!

0:17:360:17:40

So next time you see a bird, it might be a relative of a dinosaur!

0:17:400:17:44

-Rrgh!

-Argh!

0:17:440:17:46

Time for this week's secret picture password.

0:18:060:18:10

If you want to get onto our website, you have a choice of pictures.

0:18:100:18:14

It's the chicken, or...

0:18:140:18:17

the seal.

0:18:170:18:18

Which one would you choose?

0:18:180:18:21

I think I'll choose...the chicken. The T-rex chicken!

0:18:210:18:26

BEEP!

0:18:260:18:27

Yes, that's it! So this week's picture password is the chicken.

0:18:270:18:33

Ant, are you looking for your clue?

0:18:330:18:35

Yes, Lily-Rose. Everyone else has got a treasure,

0:18:350:18:39

-so there must be one for me.

-Look! Skipper's got something for you.

0:18:390:18:44

Skipper, is that for me?

0:18:440:18:46

"Search up high, search down low,

0:18:500:18:53

"what you are looking for is down below."

0:18:530:18:56

Maybe it means it's under the green balloon.

0:18:580:19:01

Oh, yes! I spy some Green Balloon Club members.

0:19:050:19:08

It must be time for the Spot of the Week.

0:19:080:19:11

BOTH: Hello!

0:19:140:19:15

This week we are spotting conkers!

0:19:150:19:17

Come on, it's time to spot!

0:19:170:19:20

Conkers are the seeds of the horse chestnut tree.

0:19:210:19:25

The leaves of the horse chestnut tree are really big!

0:19:260:19:30

Even a giant can't fit his hand on it.

0:19:300:19:34

The conker is a hard, shiny brown nut.

0:19:340:19:38

At this time of year, the green case will turn ripe and brown.

0:19:380:19:44

It will fall off the tree and crack open to show the conker inside.

0:19:440:19:49

This is a open conker shell.

0:19:490:19:51

This one's still in its shell!

0:19:510:19:54

Conkers are not to be eaten by us, but squirrels love to eat them.

0:19:540:19:59

You can see a teeth mark of a squirrel on this one!

0:19:590:20:02

To spot conkers, remember these clues.

0:20:060:20:09

The horse chestnut tree with its big hand-shaped leaves.

0:20:090:20:14

The brown, prickly case.

0:20:140:20:17

The hard, shiny brown nuts found inside.

0:20:170:20:20

Why don't you spot some conkers? BOTH: Bye!

0:20:210:20:24

Look, Ant. It's your prize!

0:20:300:20:32

Yes!

0:20:320:20:33

Look at this bug, it's brilliant!

0:20:410:20:44

-I think that you rather better call it a marvellous mini-beast!

-Yes.

0:20:440:20:49

-We've found hoards of treasure!

-We're rich!

-But sadly,

0:20:490:20:54

the treasure hunt must end, cos we're landing!

0:20:540:20:57

-And whenever we land, it's...

-ALL: Time for a song!

0:21:050:21:11

# Make believe that I'm a mermaid in the water

0:21:230:21:29

# Floating with more creatures than you've ever seen

0:21:290:21:34

# Past the cockles, and the crabs and baby lobsters

0:21:340:21:40

# It's like I'm living in some kind of aqua dream.

0:21:400:21:45

# Starfish twinkle on the shore

0:21:450:21:51

# Hold my hand and we'll explore

0:21:520:21:58

# Here we are with all our friends deep under water

0:21:580:22:04

# Hear the silence in a world of blue and green

0:22:040:22:09

# Swimming around with all the creatures under water

0:22:090:22:14

# Let's go under the sea

0:22:160:22:19

# And see what we'll see

0:22:190:22:22

# Swimming out to sea and playing with a dolphin

0:22:270:22:33

# Passing whales and seals that smile and say "Hello!"

0:22:330:22:38

# Look out for jellyfish Be careful where we're going

0:22:380:22:44

# A hungry shark might just be waiting down below

0:22:440:22:49

# Oceans beautiful and wide

0:22:500:22:55

# So much life beneath the tide

0:22:560:23:02

# Here we are with all our friends, deep under water

0:23:020:23:07

# Hear the silence in a world of blue and green

0:23:070:23:13

# Swimming around with all the creatures under water

0:23:130:23:18

# Let's go under the sea

0:23:180:23:22

# And see what we'll see

0:23:220:23:26

# Let's go under the sea. #

0:23:280:23:32
