Buds are bursting open with the warmth of spring

The woods are stunningly wet and muddy - definitely a time or boots. But the wood anemones are flowering, and buds are splitting open. 

Lots of brimstone and peacock butterflies to see too.

Yesterday three buzzards swooped lazily over the woods, and then spent the afternoon rising in the warm thermals until they were specks in the sky. Maybe they will nest in the woods again this year.
