Today I made marmalade. Big thanks for the oranges playingmumanddad, and for the help picking them. Holding a four year old above your head to grab the good ones makes all the difference.

Honest reflection: sometimes I get claustrophobic, normally in a crowded market. I’ve got better over the years but nowhere gets my heart rate up like this organic shop in Westgarth. Urgh!!!

Here’s an Otocolobus manulnature’s Grumpy Cat — discovering a camera trap outside it’s den. Camera traps are used by biologists to lean about rare animals’ behavior, abundance, and health — just by setting up a solar-powered camera with a motion trigger. No physical trapping necessary.

O. manul (also known as Pallas’s cat) is about the size of a house cat, but you’ll notice has round pupils instead of slits. It lives in western China and the steppes of Central Asia.

You’d think that Pallas’s cat would rule the internet by now - but there aren’t too many photos of them because they are both rare and shy. The IUCN lists them as near-threatened. Just another reason to support species conservation!

You can see the whole video — posted Scarce Worldwidehere.

Crackle crackle munch munch!



 Bit flat! Though I love the crustiness from baking in an enclosed cast iron skillet.



 Guess you really do need to build tension in the dough to get a good rise out of a tin.

This never seems to get boring. There’s another, less impressive, loaf still going. Prepare for disaster pic later!

 Where do plastic bottle caps go? A lot of them end up in the ocean. 75% of ocean debris is made of plastic. And it doesn’t just float around. A lot of it ends up killing marine life, like this young albatross.


 We talked with marine biology professor Richard Thompson yesterday, and he said:




 It’s not about banning plastics. It’s about thinking about the ways that we deal with plastics at the end of their lifetime to make sure that we capture the resource.




 On Midway Island, where this photo was taken, 1/3 of albatross chicks die from ingesting plastic. This image comes from photographer Chris Jordan, who says:




 For me kneeling over their carcasses is like looking into a macabre mirror. These birds reflect back an appallingly emblematic result of the collective trance of our consumerism and runaway industrial growth.




 Jordan directed a film about Midway Island and you can explore more of his pictures here.
