A quick trip out the the wood to top up the feeders gave me enough time for an hour in the hide. The feeders were buzzing with activity, largely tits but a couple of nuthatches are coming down. There seems to be much more activity than the last few years - good to see. There was an atmosphere of spring in the wood: snowdrops and aconites in flower and birds singing especially a very vocal great tit. A wren visited briefly but there is still no sign of a woodpecker. It was bright sun but chilly at 7C.
