RETURN OF WINTER & GLACIAL DEBATES
The winter returned today after a rather long warm spell. Snowfall down to Aviemore level and more to come over the weekend. Which leads nicely onto things white.
I was contacted by Jamie Woodward, Professor Physical Geography at The University of Manchester the other day. He as used a photo of mine for his blog:
There as been a recent study and controversial debate concerning the last glaciers to disappear from the British Isles, a period known as 'the little Ice age' and in particular The Scottish Highlands.
Makes interesting reading and a book is also out on the subject.
We are out on our first wild camp tomorrow, well it is 'officially' Spring but I have a feeling it will be a weekend of a wintry flavour :)
