signs of spring

when out in our semi natural oak woodland, Withycombe Scruffets recently I stopped to watch wood ants building a nest. It was fascinating to watch, and surprisingly noisy as they went about their business of moving first the Queen and the grubs, and then the workers building the colony around them. It is just one of the first signs of spring that I will be reporting back on over the next few weeks, and thanks to the glorious weather that we have been fortunate enough to be enjoying- lets hope that this is not our summer!
