Cow Green and Upper Teesdale - Plenty of snow left.
A few (mainly record shots) from Upper Teesdale, grabbed during a wander down to Cow Green reservoir with Al. The one of the Grouse is from a few weeks ago when many of us thought spring was just around the corner.
The B6277 road still had decent sized drifts.
The other day when I came down it had blown in quite badly and it was just one lane in places.
Today they were widening the road
The road down to the dam
Drifts at Ashgill Head
Cow Green Reservoir was well frozen with excellent views of the high Pennine mountains of Cross Fell, Little Dun Fell and Great Dun Fell. The place where Red Sike enters seemed to be the only area that was not frozen.
From right to left Cross Fell, Little Dun Fell and Great Dun Fell.
I thought this was an iceberg but on closer inspection turned out to be an ice coated boulder .
The poor old Red Grouse Lagopus l scoticus must be finding it hard
