The brown leaf-litter ground layer is now turning green. It's a subtle thing but the primrose leaves and deep, green stars of bluebells are taking over giving the ground a spring-like green tinge.
The dawn chorus is being added to species by species with blackbird joining in.
Interestingly, on a drive home on Thursday night, I had to dodge a group of toads crossing the road; sadly some had already been flattened.
