More signs of spring

A family walk around Fornebu revealed a few signs of spring. The first flower of the year, a hestehov was in bloom, a wood ant colony had woken with thousands of ants moving around sluggishly, a caterpillar was walking over the snow and on the bird front 3 Stock Doves were my first of the year.
On Friday I paid a visit to the woodland at Dælivannet and had my first Hawfinches of the year with at least birds including a group of 6 that were involved in display and song. A very vocal Black Woodpecker showed well and an adult male Goshawk flew over me on three occasions.
