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.

Decided to spend some time outdoors between the two legs of the evening "Rugby Run". Headed to the Robertson Car Park south of Paisley, and enjoyed a very pleasant walk on the Gleniffer Braes in still, mild conditions. Almost the first bird encountered on leaving the car was a bright male Wheatear on the fence which runs along the south side of the car park. Other birds in the area included Chiffchaff, Willow Warbler and a single Mallard. Heading further south, heard the unmistakable song of a Cuckoo. Thereafter, spent a good half hour watching the bird as it flew between blocks of conifers, sang loudly from various treetops and attracted the attention of several other birds including Carrion Crow and Blackbird. Back at the Rugby Club, two Swallows flew over.
