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.

Main event of today was the first Silverglade Chiffchaff of the Spring - singing in early evening. Meanwhile, SWT must be delighted as both their Ospreys are back safely at Loch of the Lowes and well settled in. Further north, the regular female has returned to Loch Garten, but no news yet of her mate.
