The Weather Channel, who is the expert in seasonal phenomena, has identified top ten signs of Spring to look out for as the UK starts to experience milder weather:
1) Daffodils: 'Narcissus', most commonly known as the 'daffodil', bloom in early to late spring and are one of the most well-known emblems of Spring.
2) Catkins: These incredible flower clusters are usually seen on woody shrubs and trees including oak, alder, beech and poplar.
3) Bluebells: Vibrant sheets of bluebells indicate Spring is here.
4) Frogspawn: Frogs return to ponds around February/March time each year to lay their spawn. If you spot spawn in the water, there's no doubt that Spring has arrived.
5) Bird song: There's nothing quite like the sound of birds chirping away in the trees; as soon as you hear the dawn chorus, this signifies breeding time and is a sure sign that Spring is on its way.
6) Primroses: Pretty primroses can be found in a variety of colours and sizes as the Winter season ends, usually popping up in open woods and shaded hedgerows.
7) Blossom trees budding: The stunning beauty of blooming blossom trees can only be witnessed during the early months of the year and are one of the most simple and pure symbols of Spring.
8) The first tulips: These attractive spring bulbs come in many different colours and truly represent the start of the warmer season.
9) Hedgehogs: These timid creatures hibernate all winter and emerge in the Spring when the weather takes a milder turn. Watch out for their prickles though!
10) Spring Lambs: As the Winter months come to an end, countryside fields will be breaming with young lambs jumping and darting around trying to find their feet.
