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.

Had to criss-cross rural Renfrewshire today, trying to avoid the flooding along the coast. In spite of the weather, there were plenty of House Martins and Swallows around the roadside buildings. A dozen Goldfinches burst out of a roadside hedge just west of the Clochoderick Stane. Just further on, a similar number of House Sparrows were drinking from puddles on the road.
Back at the glade, 30 or more Lesser black backed Gulls (plus juveniles) were on the Moulin playing field.
