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.

Pleasant drive from Manchester to Dumfries. Plenty of Rabbits about in roadside fields, plus 2 Kestrels and 1 Buzzard. Remnants of snow on Northern penines.
Roadside verges between Dumfries and Kirkbean full of colour with Red Campion, Wild Garlic, Common Mouse-ear Chickweed, Bluebells and Dog's Mercury all in flower (below). Hedges full of Blackthorn blossom, appearing like layers of white froth.
On the marshland between Dalbeatie and Colvend were a Buzzard, a Kestrel, 2 displaying Curlews and a possible Grasshopper Warbler. Also plenty of bats down at Colvend.
