SPRING is officially in the air – with today marking the first day of the new season.

And while it may not be time to reach for the sunglasses just yet, forecaster say the arrival of spring in Worcester should bring mild temperatures reaching 12C or 13C, a decent amount of sunshine and little to no rain.

But just in case the forecasters get it wrong, here is a selection of spring pictures captured by some of our readers and regular photographic contributors.

From an adorable newborn lamb perched on its doting mother, captured on camera by Gemma Sanders, to daffodils and stunning countryside scenes, we hope the collection helps put a spring in your step today.
