Paul Crabtree reports that all snow gone on Cross Fell. Final melt-date likely to have been today.
That means the only snow now in England is in the Lakes.
Did Paul Crabtree visit the snow patch site Iain? I felt that the screes patch that I observed on Sunday, would last a bit longer than today. It is tucked into a deep hollow and I doubt whether it would be visible from anywhere other than right by it. I certainly could not see it on my approach from below.
Mind you, it's pretty academic as it's forecast to rain tomorrow so that will probably melt any that's left.
Incidentily, it was interesting to note that animals had be playing on the snow that day as the surface was pretty scuffed up with some paw prints clearly visible. We reckoned that they were probably stoat or weasel prints.
