A top coat colder

Blawhorn Moss NNR

Blawhorn Moss holds onto its snow longer than our other reserves. Perhaps not a surprise as it lies on the 220m contour line. We always say that Blawhorn is a “top coat colder” and clothing layers should be adjusted accordingly! A visit at the end of last week found Blawhorn still well covered and looking absolutely splendid. Being drenched in sunshine helped. Here is just a taste of the views. Nothing else. Just nice bog and snow.

The ridge and furrow (see below), the remains of a pre-mechanic field cultivation system, on the mineral ground in the middle of the reserve was very obvious in the snow and low winter light.
