The non-appearance of the forecast snow at the weekend was a big disappointment – it passed by just a few miles to the east. Was that the last chance of snow for the duration of this project I wonder? But last night’s hard frost was very welcome. Whilst the area all around spent most of the day steeped in freezing fog, Bredon Hill stood above the fog basking in glorious winter sun. On ground open to the sun the frost, which made for far easier walking, lasted for a couple of hours after sunrise and afforded some excellent photographic possibilities.
