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.

Not quite so warm today, but another rain-free day was most welcome. The day started well with a pair of Bullfinches nervously checking out the cherry tree in the front garden. Next stop was the Sallochy car park on Loch Lomondside. A 90 minute walk there produced a Jay, a calling Redstart, 7 singing Willow Warblers (no Chiffchaffs), 2 pairs of Bullfinches, lots of Siskins, a single Long tailed Tit, a singing Blackcap, 5 Goosanders, a Canada Goose and some assorted gulls. The only human life consisted of two canoists paddling by a little offshore. Perfect peace!
.
Stopped off at Mugdock Park on the way home. Highlights there were two singing Willow Warblers (one in a traditional spot near the start of the boardwalk), a Buzzard being mobbed by a crow, a pair of Mute Swans on the loch and a pair of Greylags on Craigend Pond.
