Bluebells are starting to spring up across the county as the days get longer.

Our Argus Camera Club snappers have been out and about across the region taking pictures of the beautiful blue bloom.

The carpet of bluebells can be seen from Stanmer Park to Steyning and everywhere in between, attracting hundreds of nature lovers hoping to catch a glimpse.

The fragrant flowers usually blossom from late March to early May, one of the last spring woodland flowers to bloom after snowdrops, primroses, celandine and wood anemones.

The National Trust has said that the mild weather has brought forward the blossoming of trees and shrubs in its gardens - and says the arrival of blooms as much as four weeks early is a clear sign of the impact of climate change.
