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.

I never cease to be amazed by the wildlife which can be seen (and heard) from the car during otherwise ordinary urban journeys. Today a Whitethroat was scratching from a scrubby area next to the Dennistoun off-ramp of the M8 and a Chiffchaff was singing at the Newark Roundabout in Port Glasgow. Back home, a Chiffchaff, Blackcap, two Willow Warblers and a Song Thrush were singing loudly while the local Blue Tits continue to ferry food to their young.
Once again, the central reservation of the M8 at the south end of the Kingston Bridge was covered with a profusion of wildflowers  - someone really should get an award for it.
Meanwhile, one organisation that should NOT be getting an award is the BBC, after two presenters (were alleged to have) disturbed a pair of Barn Owls during the making of a TV programme.
