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.

The waves were crashing onto North Berwick beach first thing. Indeed the ferocious east wind continued all day, whipping sand, spume and snow in equal measures along the shore. Heading out into the teeth of the gale, the only birds on the wing were big gulls checking the flotsam and jetsam being brought in. Two Carrion Crows thought better of flying and instead stayed crouched on the sea wall. A lovely drake Red-breasted Merganser had taken refuge on the paddling pool. Meanwhile 20 Eider were bobbing in the lee of the harbour. Up in the town, 20 Starlings hurtled over the High Street.
Had to head back to Glasgow in the early afternoon. A mystery small raptor was near Longniddry and two Buzzards were beside the bypass. Ten or more Redwings were over Ballencrieff. A Song Thrush was behind the Glebe House.
