Natural Connections

Modern life in Scotland is increasingly busy. The connections our ancestors had with nature and the land are being lost. As leisure time shrinks, or is filled with hi-tech experiences, opportunities to experience nature become fewer. And yet it is possible to connect with nature on a day to day basis. All around us, the great web of life continues to hold its shape, and nature continues its eternal cycles. Keep looking, listening, smelling, touching - and keep experiencing natural connections.

Torrential rain for spells today, interspersed with periods of warm sunshine. One possible casualty of the rain was a near full-grown Starling chick on the pavement in front of a building on Nelson Street, Greenock. Not sure whether it died as a result of the fall, or was already dead and was washed down by the rain. Whatever, it made a forlorn, but not uncommon sight at this time of the year. No such misfortune for the gull chicks on the factory roofs in Port Glasgow. Their parents wisely nest close to ventilation ducts, under which the chicks can find shelter if the weather gets bad.
Roe Deer still at Finlaystone, this time in the first meadow. Shelduck flock off Erskine shore now up to around 20. Single Grey Heron nearby.
