Acer not coming in to leaf

Question from Simon Mennens

Was wondering if I have an issue with my Acer as it has yet to come into leaf.
It is planted in a clay heavy solid, but there is near by planting in relatively loose soil allowing a degree of drainage (albeit not a lot).
The red branch tips seem to be soft and pliable, but further down the branch it seems more woody and a more grey colour.

Not sure as to if the tree is fed up with the weather or if it has a real issue.
