birds : It feels like the migration season has ended now, with just the odd bird trickling through, and the breeding season has sprung into life with baby Stonechats, Starlings and Shelducks appearing all around. So apart from the odd summer-time rarity, that's probably it until the autumn birdwise. The best sighting of the week for me was watching a Hobby soaring over the Petites Vallees on Tuesday lunchtime.

moths : The first Silver Y moths were noted this week on a couple of headlands, so I must get the trap out soon. The weather has been pretty hot this week so insects has emerged in force and I took a few photos of some bugs.The identification of these below may not be certain.

nonsense : Earlier in the week I watched the terrific finale of the TV series LOST. It was a great ending to a great show which I have spent 120 hours watching over the last few years. I think that the writers could have made the ending a little more explicit as I had to watch it a couple of times to know what the hell was going on. Also there were various mysteries in the series that were never answered but perhaps it was meant to be that way. It was satisfying that the whole series ended in exactly the same way as it started, with Jack lying in the bamboo forest and Vincent the dog finding him.
