March 2014 was warm, dry and sunny in the Anglia region and among the mildest on record.
Temperatures in the Anglia region reached 20°C on Sunday putting places like Menorca, Madrid and Rome into the shade.
Just a week ago May was heading towards being one of the coldest and dullest on record but in the space of 7 days that has changed.
After the long months of winter the first signs of spring can be seen at the Welney Wetland Reserve in Cambridgeshire.
The boxing hares will shortly be followed by migrant bird visitors such as the Arctic terns and black-tailed godwits.
