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.

Spent a couple of hours checking some sites in Ayrshire prior to my first appointment in Ayr at 8:45. Martnaham Loch was damp and misty but the Black Swan was showing well as it fed out in the open water. Doonfoot and Greenan were also very wet. However the former held a single Greenshank and the latter three Greenshanks, fifteen Sandwich Terns and a flock of 20 Goosanders. Pow Burn had singing Reed Bunting, Sedge Warbler, Whitethroat and Grasshopper Warbler. However best sighting was a Burnet Moth which zoomed away over the rough grass.
Breeding evidence included a Rook feeding a fledgling and a Black headed Gull accompanied by a gingery juvenile, both at Doonfoot.
Heading back to Greenock, Kestrel, Wheatear and Common Sandpiper were all north of Largs.
