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.

Loch of the Lowes - second egg laid on 16th (but new male not fulfilling all duties yet)

Tweed Valley - third egg laid on 14th
Caerlaverock - still nest building / mating
Wigton Bay - first egg laid today
