Sightings of bluebells have doubled since last year, according to the Woodland Trust, as it tracks the first appearance of the flowers across the country this spring.
Paul Hetherington, spokesman for The Woodland Trust, said they had reports in as early as the first of March this year and that they have already had 55 confirmed sightings of Bluebells.
"The first ones were down in the Bristol area", he said, adding that you could also see a bluebell field at Heartwood Forest, near St Albans.
He said that their records show that Spring is gradually moving forward by about two weeks every year since the turn of the century.
This early spring could have "catastrophic effects" in that it could have implications for how it interacts with other species such as frogs who now tend to spawn as early as December.
"Should you get a freeze, that frogspawn will be wiped out", he said.
