Picked a good day to ascent Skiddaw although it was very windy on the summit. Ullock Pike is very distinctive peak and resembles at small "Matterhorn". The views to Bassenthwaite Lake from Ullock Pike and Long Side were fantastic. Met with walkers who had the day before seen the newly hatched Ospreys near the Lake.
