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.

Sunday, January 08, 2012

The usual Sunday morning walk from Cardonald to Hyndland was notable for a significant increase in birdsong. Collared Doves were particularly evident, with at least four singing birds heard. Other species beginning to sing included Woodpigeon, Feral Pigeon, Robin (not just the winter song), Blue Tit, Great Tit, Wren, Pied Wagtail and Starling. Two Jackdaws were showing a lot of interest in a chimney pot on Mosspark Boulevard and a Bullfinch was piping at Dumbreck. Highlight was probably the female Sparrowhawk disturbed from its prey (which it carried up into a tree) in Cardonald Cemetery.
Spent the afternoon at a muddy Cartha Queen's Park Rugby Club where the natural highlight was a flock of Long tailed Tits in the car park.
