I spy spots
The weather is supposed to start warming up this weekend, so go on a ladybird hunt to see if you can find any waking from hibernation.
Check out the Woodland Trust's live ladybird map, to see if any have been spotted near you:

Can you find any ladybirds still hibernating? They like to huddle together in hollow plant stems, or cracks in tree bark. Don't disturb them though, they'll wake up soon when the weather warms up a bit more.
