The first shoots were starting to appear through the leaves and the birds seemed 'busy'.

We were shouted at by a bird that was very cross we'd disturbed it (we didn't see what it was, but definitely heard it), a woodpecker tapped a tree trunk right above us and we caught sight of a tiny goldcrest.
