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 change to more unsettled weather today. Decided to explore a new area (between Brownside, Glenburn and Dykebar) and spent an hour checking out footpaths and farm roads. Birds were fairly scarce (the traffic noise didn't help) and there were no Yellowhammers at all (even though the habitat seemed ideal). Most notable records were two pairs of Coot on Glenburn Dam and double figures of singing Willow Warblers.
This afternoon a walk around Castle Semple Loch produced numerous Sand Martins and Swallows but little else.
