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.

Quiet day today, connection-wise. The two Toads were looking very restless in the pond, so I helped them out and into cover. Hope they remember where the pond is come spawning time.

Caught a huge Toad and an equally huge Frog which had hidden under a neighbour's paving slabs. Released them both in the silverglade pond. While we were doing so, another Toad (presumably the one which turned up about 2 weeks ago) came up from the pond bottom for some air. Neither of the new arrivals settled so I helped both out onto the pond edges. The Frog hopped into the nearby undergrowth but the Toad promptly hopped back into the pond. Have left a stone which can be used as an escape route if necessary (until I have time to put in a sloping gravel bank).

Forgot to mention, middle of last week, 14 Mallards on the river just 200m west of here, included a leucistic bird.
