It was almost unexpected today for the weather to turn so good so suddenly. The sun came out when I was booting up (footwear, not PC!) and stayed throughout the walk. The wind though was a really cold northerly – an icy blast. We bumped into Oscar the Beardie at the start, a regular on these fells and one we have seen a good few times before. As you can imagine, there was fur and wagging tails everywhere! By the end of the walk it was snowing really heavily and the high fells certainly had a good fall of new snow on them. Is this the resurgence of winter?
