Here in Wincle it hasn’t rained since mid-May. It is now the end of July and it has been very hot.
The consequence for farmers is that they are using up their winter feed in order to feed the cows and sheep now. There is considerable concern about what will happen when winter comes as far as feed for their stock is concerned.
The ground is hard and the vegetation brown. Fire warnings are posted on the moors.
The good news is that it is great for walkers. No mud and easy walking. We must make the most of it whilst we can.
