0:00:450:00:48

Hey, hello there, tiddlers. How are you tiddling?

0:00:510:00:54

Mr Bloom here and apart from gardening,

0:00:540:00:56

I like going out and about.

0:00:560:00:59

I like going here and there, doing lots of fun things

0:00:590:01:01

and finding out about new places

0:01:010:01:03

and I've been wondering what do you like to do where you live?

0:01:030:01:06

Perhaps you might like going to the beach with your family

0:01:060:01:09

or visiting a museum?

0:01:090:01:11

ROUTE FINDER PINGS

0:01:110:01:12

Oh... it looks like somebody wants to tell me.

0:01:120:01:15

-I'm Luca.

-I'm Ciara.

-I'm Sean.

0:01:150:01:18

ALL: And we love where we live!

0:01:180:01:21

There are lots of things to see.

0:01:240:01:26

I like to go to the river with my mum.

0:01:270:01:31

And this scene was drawn by the children in my school.

0:01:340:01:38

It tells everyone all about the river.

0:01:380:01:41

I think the school was there.

0:01:410:01:45

I like to walk inside the tunnel.

0:01:450:01:48

I like the wee green bridge over the River Carron.

0:01:480:01:53

Wow. Very good!

0:01:530:01:55

My favourite thing is riding on my bike.

0:01:560:02:00

My dad takes me riding near where we live.

0:02:000:02:03

I sometimes ride over this brand-new bridge.

0:02:050:02:09

It's great round here, Mr Bloom.

0:02:130:02:16

We'd love for you to come and see us.

0:02:160:02:18

ALL: Yes!

0:02:180:02:19

Hey, you know what? I'd love to come.

0:02:190:02:22

# Whereabouts will I end up next

0:02:310:02:34

# Let's put my route finder to the test

0:02:350:02:38

# It could be a beach, a village or a city

0:02:390:02:42

# Museum or a school, a garden so pretty

0:02:420:02:45

# A church or a station, a river or town

0:02:450:02:47

# I just can't wait till you show me around

0:02:470:02:49

# Tiddlers, I'm on my way

0:02:490:02:53

# So where am I today? #

0:02:530:02:57

Hey up. It's Luca, Ciara and Sean. Hello there, tiddlers.

0:03:160:03:21

ALL: Hello!

0:03:210:03:22

It's nice to see you. So, Luca, what are you doing here?

0:03:220:03:25

Well, we're weaving this willow.

0:03:250:03:28

Eh, I see.

0:03:280:03:30

You're weaving the willow into these eco-domes.

0:03:300:03:33

-Can you show me how that's done?

-Mm-hmm.

0:03:330:03:36

You put it in, then you put it out like that.

0:03:360:03:39

It's like you're plaiting the tree!

0:03:390:03:41

And what are you using these eco-domes for?

0:03:410:03:44

-Em, we're going to do classes in them.

-Wow!

0:03:440:03:47

-What type of classes do you have, Sean?

-Art.

-Art classes.

0:03:470:03:51

Eh? That's right up my street. Is it all right if I stick around?

0:03:510:03:54

ALL: Yeah!

0:03:540:03:56

The tiddlers are doing rubbings of leaves they found

0:03:580:04:02

in the school garden.

0:04:020:04:04

Wow! What smashing, colourful pieces of art.

0:04:130:04:16

Oh, tiddlers, these pictures are brilliant.

0:04:160:04:21

-So is there anything else that you want to show me?

-The River Carron.

0:04:210:04:24

-The River Carron. Is that nearby, Luca?

-Yes.

0:04:240:04:27

-It's over there, right behind you.

-Is that so?

0:04:270:04:30

Well, let's go and see it. Come on.

0:04:300:04:33

'Mrs Bell's a River Ranger and has helped make the River Carron

0:04:390:04:43

'a brilliant place for the tiddlers to find out about nature.'

0:04:430:04:46

-Oh, tiddlers. This is a lovely spot by the river, ain't it?

-Yes.

0:04:560:05:00

-So, what should we do? Shall we sunbathe?

-No.

-No? It's a nice day.

0:05:000:05:05

-Hey, we could sail a boat.

-No!

-No, what d'you want to do down here?

0:05:050:05:09

ALL: Kick sampling!

0:05:090:05:11

Kick sampling. Well, that sounds like fun.

0:05:110:05:14

Mrs Bell, what do we need to do?

0:05:140:05:17

Get yourself into the water and get nice and stable.

0:05:170:05:20

And then once you're steady, hold on to your net to balance you,

0:05:200:05:23

-you can then start taking a little kick sample.

-Easy does it.

0:05:230:05:27

'The tiddlers know to be very careful when entering the water

0:05:270:05:30

'and only go in the areas that Mrs Bell has made sure are safe.'

0:05:300:05:35

THEY CHATTER

0:05:350:05:38

So, Luca, what do you have to do to kick sample?

0:05:400:05:44

Well, you have to place your foot where it is nice and comfortable.

0:05:440:05:49

Then you have to kick the river bed so all the insects

0:05:490:05:52

-can get into the net.

-Very good.

0:05:520:05:54

Right, shall I give it a go? Give it a go. Here I go.

0:05:540:05:57

Urgh! You tell me if I'm doing it right.

0:05:570:06:00

Oh, yeah! Look. The water's changing colour. Why's it doing that?

0:06:010:06:05

-Because all the dust from the river bed.

-Yeah.

0:06:050:06:09

All the sediment is coming up.

0:06:090:06:11

Maybe there's a few animals in there as well.

0:06:110:06:14

Brilliant. Let's see what we've got.

0:06:280:06:31

There's lots of weed and some leaves. Oh!

0:06:310:06:35

You see those little things down there, wiggling around. Oh!

0:06:350:06:39

I wonder what they are?

0:06:390:06:41

-We've got a sheet that tells us all the names.

-Hey.

0:06:410:06:44

Let's have a look at this, shall we?

0:06:440:06:48

'Let's see what we've found.'

0:06:480:06:50

What do you think. Which one?

0:06:500:06:52

Maybe one of these.

0:06:520:06:54

'I think it's a stonefly nymph.'

0:06:540:06:57

So, Luca, can you tell me, why is it important to do kick sampling?

0:07:010:07:05

-So we can see all the insects.

-That's right.

0:07:050:07:09

Yeah, you can see all the animals and insects in the river.

0:07:090:07:11

And what does that tell us about the river?

0:07:110:07:14

-It tells you how healthy it is.

-Yes.

0:07:140:07:16

If there's lots of insects and animals

0:07:160:07:18

it means the river's doing well.

0:07:180:07:20

I think they must love where they live, just like you.

0:07:200:07:23

I wonder if there are any other animals around here?

0:07:230:07:26

ROUTE FINDER PINGS

0:07:260:07:28

Oh, hey... It looks like the route finder has something to show us.

0:07:280:07:32

The fresh water that flows in rivers can contain lots of goodness,

0:07:340:07:39

so it is a great place for animals to live.

0:07:390:07:41

This newt likes to keep nice and wet.

0:07:410:07:45

And these shrimp like it in the river.

0:07:450:07:47

There are so many of them underwater.

0:07:470:07:49

Above water, these damselflies are really happy fluttering about.

0:07:490:07:55

Heh-heh. Rivers are fantastic places for birds, too.

0:07:550:08:00

Kingfishers are masters at catching fish for their tea.

0:08:000:08:03

Water shrews live right on the river's edge

0:08:060:08:09

and they love going for a swim.

0:08:090:08:11

Oh! There are so many animals to see.

0:08:110:08:14

Wow! There's loads of animals that live beside

0:08:190:08:22

-and in the river, aren't there, tiddlers?

-ALL: Yes.

0:08:220:08:25

What do you like about the river, Sean?

0:08:250:08:28

Well, I like the sound of it.

0:08:280:08:30

The sound. Yeah. Shall we just listen?

0:08:300:08:32

WATER RIPPLES AND BUBBLES

0:08:320:08:34

BIRDSONG

0:08:340:08:36

Yes. That makes me feel nice and relaxed. How does it make you feel?

0:08:360:08:40

-Relaxed as well.

-Yes.

0:08:400:08:41

And it's nice, ain't it,

0:08:410:08:43

cos we've got this lovely bench that we can sit on.

0:08:430:08:46

Although, hey, it's a bit overgrown back here, look. Look at all this.

0:08:460:08:50

What do you reckon we could do about that?

0:08:500:08:52

-We could get nicer flowers instead of these not nice flowers.

-Wow!

0:08:520:08:58

Tiddlers, that's a great idea. We could smarten this up, couldn't we?

0:08:580:09:02

We can paint wildlife on the rocks.

0:09:020:09:06

Yeah, we could make a rockery.

0:09:060:09:09

I think we need to get to work. Come on, let's go.

0:09:090:09:12

Hey, tiddlers. Oh, these are looking good. What are you painting, Alex?

0:09:220:09:27

-Flowers.

-Flowers. Oh, are they buttercups?

0:09:270:09:30

-Mm-hmm.

-Yeah. I can see lots of buttercups over there.

0:09:300:09:34

-Have you seen these flowers out there in the meadow?

-Yeah.

0:09:340:09:37

-And what about you, Keeley?

-I'm drawing a worm.

0:09:370:09:40

-Have you seen some worms round here?

-Uh-huh.

0:09:400:09:43

So these are all things that you have seen in the meadow.

0:09:430:09:46

Oh, Ciara, that is brilliant. Oh, can you tell me about it?

0:09:510:09:55

It's a fish in a fish tank

0:09:550:09:58

-and I have got some grass seed to make it fish food.

-Some fish food.

0:09:580:10:03

In case he gets hungry. You know what, that's inspired me.

0:10:030:10:07

I think I'd like to do some painting. Have you a brush

0:10:070:10:10

-I could use?

-Yeah.

-Thank you very much.

0:10:100:10:12

Now, what shall I paint? I think I'll paint those trees over there.

0:10:120:10:18

-HE HUMS

-Right.

0:10:180:10:21

-Right. Here we go, Ciara. What do you think?

-That's amazing.

-Amazing.

0:10:310:10:37

Oh, it's very kind of you to say.

0:10:370:10:39

But I think all of your rocks are amazing.

0:10:390:10:42

Let's go and put them round that bench.

0:10:420:10:44

'While we were painting, some River Rangers helped by clearing

0:10:440:10:48

'away all the weeds around the bench.'

0:10:480:10:51

Now, look, tiddlers!

0:10:550:10:57

Here's my rock and where in the rockery could it go?

0:10:570:11:00

ALL: There.

0:11:000:11:01

I think you're right. There's room down there for my rock.

0:11:010:11:05

Give them a wiggle.

0:11:100:11:12

And pop that in your hole. In there.

0:11:140:11:16

Good job. Good job.

0:11:170:11:20

Well, tiddlers, would you look at that?

0:11:210:11:24

A lovely bench for everybody to sit and enjoy.

0:11:240:11:27

Who do you think should be the first person to sit on the bench

0:11:270:11:31

amongst all your lovely rocks?

0:11:310:11:33

-ALL: Mrs Bell.

-Mrs Bell.

0:11:330:11:36

Come on then, Mrs Bell. Park yourself there. What's it like?

0:11:360:11:41

I think it's looking absolutely fantastic. Absolutely beautiful.

0:11:410:11:46

MR BLOOM CHUCKLES

0:11:460:11:48

Well, tiddlers, thank you so much for inviting me out today

0:11:490:11:53

and thank you, Mrs Bell. But I best be off now.

0:11:530:11:56

So, join me soon when I'll be...

0:11:560:11:58

ALL: Here and there!

0:11:580:12:01

# Where is it you like to go

0:12:050:12:07

# Call me up and let me know

0:12:070:12:09

# What is it you like to do

0:12:090:12:11

# I'll pop along and do it too

0:12:110:12:14

# Cities, towns, the countryside

0:12:140:12:16

# I can travel far and wide

0:12:160:12:18

# I'm all about and everywhere

0:12:180:12:21

# I'm here and there. #

0:12:210:12:23

Sean, Keira and Luca invite Mr Bloom to Falkirk where he tries kick-sampling to look for tiny river creatures with the help of a River Ranger. He then rolls up his sleeves to help the Tiddlers create a wildlife garden around a riverside bench.
