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.

Heading over to a meeting first thing, three Swallows were swooping over the road on the outskirts of Newton Mearns. Also notable was a Grey Squirrel gingerly crossing the busy Barrhead Road at Silverburn. Later, in Paisley Town Centre, there were four immature Goosanders vigorously washing in the river with nine Mute Swans (including seven full-grown immatures) and two Grey Wagtails nearby. Another two Grey Wagtails were encountered this evening, one on the Cart at Moulin and one (unusually) on Rosshall Park pond. Also unusual was a calling Siskin.
Great news tonight (as more migrating geese funnel down the East coast of Scotland) is that both the satellite-tracked Honey Buzzards ringed in Moray this summer have made it to Africa (Highland Foundation for Wildlife).
