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 busy day of birdwatching began with a timed tetrad visit to Craigton and Hillington. Highlights were few at this very urban site, but included fledged broods of both Coal Tit and Swallow. This afternoon, walked home from Sargeant Law in the Gleniffer Braes. Strong winds meant that birding was hard work, but there were plenty of hirundines and Swifts around, plus Little Grebe, Kestrel (2), Grey Heron, Stock Dove and Linnet.
