Temperature Inversion

December 19, 2021 at 7:49 pm

When we have a High Pressure in Winter it is the best time to go out and film temperature inversions. These occur when the temperature in the valleys is colder than that on the hill-tops. Mist and cloud is formed in the valley bottoms with glorious sunshine above. It is a fabulous natural occurrence and this week was the best I have ever seen. The blog photo shows the valleys of river Calder and Ribble in dense fog but high above the top of Pendle Hill is bathed in sunshine
I only saw my first Fieldfares of winter this week and never before have I seen more Jack Snipe than Fieldfare by this time of the year. Ten Jack Snipe in a remote bog on the 20th October was an exceptional count.www.facebook.com/gordonyateswildlife
