French Trip - Day 6 - 19/5/13

Woke up to a surprisingly bright morning. The contents of the previous evenings snow blizzard was still lingering, however this had obviously prompted a few species to descend. Our last day in the Alps, so as much time was spent trying to clear up on any missed species, but due to the conditions it was tricky. The afternoon was spent on the coast again and we spent the night in a car park at Le Crau.
