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.

A bitterly cold day in West Central Scotland with the prospect of the same tomorrow. No natural connections today due to work commitments. However the Coal Tits at the garden feeder kept me company, coming and going virtually all day.
Naturalresolutions for 2009:
  • Find the nesting sites of the Rooks which frequent the shops at Crookston Cross and the Swifts which scream over Crookston Hotel.
  • Do a proper count of the House Martins nesting in Cardonald Gardens.
  • Add Sand Martin to the patch list.
  • Learn the difference between immature Herring and Lesser black backed Gulls.
  • Check out local woods for calling Tawny Owls.
  • Extend my coverage to the whole tetrad which contains "my" 1km square.
