I have done a little work on the rainfall %'s over the last 7 months (Oct-Apr) and it is clear that the ground is getting dry and the rivers running low, so here are a few figures from a few sites:

Kirkby Thore has had 81.5% of its normal rainfall
Brothers Water has had 71.1%
Haresceught Castle 88.4%
Seathwaite 80.2%

when I get April's data for Shap and Newton Rigg I'll add these on

here 89%

deficit of 120mm October - December

surplus of 50mm January - April (due to very very wet march)

so overall 70mm behind the long-term average

quite clearly May continued the dry theme (although not everywhere, The Lakes in particular which had more than average) - will have to work out some averages when time allows
