Went over to Keswick on Buisness and managed to include a bit of birding and sightseeing. It was a brilliant day sun all day making the snow look fantastic on the Mountains, Central Gully on Great End will be in prime condition for a snow and ice climb.
There was quite a few Robbins down by the lake with a few feathers flying over territoriall disputes. also quite a few birds are becoming more tame as the shortage of food gets worse.
Derwentwater was froze solid from end to end , and reminded me of 78 when a big party of us was skating all over it. There was a mix bag of gulls and Mallard by the boat landings , all waiting expectanly for food from any passing local or tourist that was willing to feed them.
