A Rare Breeds Centre near Downham Market in Norfolk has begun its lambing season, but has spring come early because of our mild winter?
Statistics say we've had one of the mildest and sunniest winters in East Anglia for years, with higher than average amounts of sunshine.
In Cambridgeshire, the popular snow drop festival at Anglesey Abbey has come two weeks early and blossom is already starting to appear on many trees across the region.

At Church Farm rare breed centre near Downham Market in Norfolk, the lambing season is in full swing.
The lamb pictured above is around 2 weeks old, and the farm park will carry on lambing up until April.
It's not unusual in East Anglia for lambing to be early in February, because the climate here is generally kinder.
Farmers will lamb all at once, while places like Church Farm stagger their lambing, because rare breeds come into season at different times.
