    From Gov.uk:

    "Up to 28 April 2021, the MHRA had received Yellow Card reports of 242 cases of major thromboembolic events (blood clots) with concurrent thrombocytopenia (low platelet counts) in the UK following vaccination with COVID-19 Vaccine AstraZeneca. These events occurred in 141 women and 100 men aged from 18 to 93 years and the overall case fatality rate was 20% with 49 deaths. Six cases have been reported after a second dose .

    Cerebral venous sinus thrombosis was reported in 93 cases (average age 47 years) and 149 had other major thromboembolic events (average age 55 years) with concurrent thrombocytopenia.

    The estimated number of first doses of COVID-19 Vaccine AstraZeneca administered in the UK by 28 April was 22.6 million and the estimated number of second doses was 5.9 million."

    So about a 1 in a million chance of blood clots with low platelets after a second dose.

    8.09 miles, 3,167 feet, 2 hours 28 minutes: Wansfell Pike from 3 sides. Sunshine and clouds, a refreshing cool breeze, no rain. Got down to my vest for the last climb. Mainly dry, except in areas of poor drainage. Quite a few on the main steps up to the Pike, not many at all elsewhere.

    10.46 miles, 3,064 feet, 2 hours 55 minutes: Loughrigg trails. Sunshine and clouds, no significant wind, the occasional spot of rain, terrain mainly dry. Down to my vest for the last few miles. Not many about. One cuckoo. Two dogs that threatened to jump up on me - one whilst I was on quite steep ground - it was coming at me from above, and in putting my hand up to protect my face I lost balance - fortunately putting a hand down enabled me to recover. The owner was not at all apologetic.

    There was an old comedy sketch, maybe on Absolutely, where a dog jumps up and pushes a man off a cliff. The owner then shouts down the cliff "don't worry - he's just being friendly".

    I'm glad it didn't reach the punchline this time.

    Ummmmm. Times like that is when a priest could come in handy. And we're not talking about the ecclesiastical type

    10.15 miles, 3,538 feet, 3 hours 11 minutes: Wansfell Pike from 3 sides. Overcast with intermittent light drizzle and the occasional minute or two of sunshine. Waterproof top not used, though nor did I get down to my vest. No significant wind. Terrain mainly damp, wet in places. Not many about.

    10.22 miles, 3,022 feet, 2 hours 53 minutes: Loughrigg trails. Initially heavily overcast and cool, with the cloud base at about 1,800 feet - later, patches of blue sky appeared and it warmed up nicely. No wind, terrain mainly dry; got down to my vest for the last hour. Quite a few about on the main paths. One cuckoo today - heard two yesterday.

    The Brathay 10 marathons in 10 days has started - saw one of the runners coming in - madness.

    9.14 miles, 3,474 feet, 2 hours 48 minutes: Wansfell Pike from 3 sides. Overcast with a few sunny spells and intermittent light drizzle; a refreshing breeze. Terrain mainly dry. Waterproof not used, though I did not get down to my vest. Lots on the main steps to the Pike, the other routes were quiet, in particular the ascent from the south east was deserted apart from me. The roads are busy.

    11.21 miles, 3,582 feet, 3 hours 25 minutes: Loughrigg trails. I had hoped to go higher, but the forecast was very off-putting - and wrong. Initially sunshine and brief spells of light drizzle, later sunny and warm, no significant wind. Terrain damp with occasional slippery muddy patches. I was down to my vest in no time. Not that many about. Again I saw one of the Brathay 10 in 10 runners coming in - he looked shattered - much too warm for that sort of thing. One cuckoo heard today, right above my head.

    9.71 miles, 3,610 feet, 3 hours 6 minutes: Wansfell Pike from 3 sides. More or less constant drizzle, but no wind and not cold. Waterproof top not used. Terrain damp/wet. Not many on the fell, but lots on the roads between the lake and town. One cuckoo heard.
