Snowdrops, crocuses, daffies and even tulips- after the dark and dull winter months, spring seems to be an explosion of colours and fragrances. Suddenly, there's beauty all around.

For animals, however, spring seems to be a completely different story. Territories must be marked, partners have to be found. The survival of the offspring is at stake. Where's the safest nesting place, where can we find food without wasting precious energy? Spring's the season where you can see creatures fight who otherwise are quiet happy leaving each other alone.
