After the warmest February on record Spring certainly seems to be on its way and talented photographers have been out and about camera in hand to capture buds appearing and wildlife enjoying the sunshine.

Temperatures tipped 20 degrees centigrade for the first time just weeks ago, and despite the weather returning to average - with traditional wet and blustery days.

Although spring won’t officially begin officially until the spring equinox on March 20, the warm weather is believed to have encouraged plants and animals to shake off winter a little earlier than usual.

All of our photographers shared their wonderful pictures to the Gloucestershire Camera Club Facebook group - where people from all over the world share, and enjoy seeing, photos taken around the county (and beyond!).
