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.

Another day spent in the Aviemore area. Highlight of a morning walk from Boat of Garten to Aviemore was a newly fledged Spotted Flycatcher at Dalfaber. Regular passes from a steam train on the Broomhill line was also good.
This evening, a circuit of sites between Coylumbridge and Boat of Garten produced 100 Jackdaws at Drumintoul, Osprey and Buzzard at Drumchork, two Tufted Ducks on Loch Piyoulish, a singing Yellowhammer just before the turn-off to Kincardine Cottage, 100 Lapwings at West Croftmore and 40 Swifts over the car park at Loch Garten. A vole ran across in front of the car at Tulloch Moor.
Birds at the resort included Collared Dove and Siskin.
