The Last Footpath Survey at Whicham

Yesterday we were able to complete the last footpath survey at Whicham, it was the third route up White Combe. The snow has all cleared from the lower ground. That is White Combe in the distance with a few patches of snow on it. It was a grey day not the gorgeous winter sunshine & snow that we had earlier in the month. We started from the base of the green topped mound to the right of centre
At last we find a small pocket of snow
As we climb Black Combe starts to appear over the ridge-line

Not really a very photogenic day, but we are pleased to get all the surveys done in good time for our end of Feb deadline, Wild Ennerdale tomorrow but there isn't much going on with the National Park at the moment so we have contacted a few rangers to see if they have any surveys or jobs on we can help with.
