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.

The good weather of the past few days has meant ideal conditions for natural connections. Best today was the sighting of a Buzzard and two Carrion Crows in dramatic aerial combat not far from Crosshouse Hospital. Also enjoyed singing Willow Warblers around the car park at the Ayr Hospital, Coltsfoot beside the moor road from Stewarton, a Great crested Grebe close-in at Balgray Reservoir, a single Swallow at Blackstoun Farm and masses of Cuckoo Flower in Mosspark cemetery.
Interested to see large numbers of wild flowers (mostly Dandelions and Daisies) spangling some of the roadside fields south of Neilston. The contrast with neighbouring fields of improved grass (100% flower-free) was remarkable. Wonder how long it will be before the sheep nibble everything back to the roots.
