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.

Had one of those unforgettable days in the Scottish countryside today. The weather was already looking promising on leaving Glasgow, and the sky got bluer and the autumn colours brighter as the day wore on. A Cormorant was high over the Stepps Bypass and a skein of Pink footed Geese was over the A9 north of Dunblane. Leaving Braco on the Comrie road, a Red legged Partridge (the first of many today) was running along the verge. Further along, two Red Kites were soaring low over the road.
The rest of the day was spent in the hills above Comrie. Highlights included the "White Church", autumn Beech trees, the Cauldron waterfall, the the view from "the monument" (to the First Lord Melville, Henry Dundas) and some legendary Lemon and Ginger Doublers (!). Heading home, the sky was a perfect orange, and full of geese.
