Look for early flowers, busy birds and frogspawn!

It may still be winter, but spring isn’t far away! Keep your eyes peeled in January and February for the very first hints of the new season.

  • Look for tell-tale green shoots popping up from the woodland floor
  • Birds start singing early in the morning – can you hear them?
  • Can you find any leaf buds getting ready to burst?

What other fresh spring signs can you spot?
