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.

A Sparrowhawk was being chased by a crow just east of Polmont. Six domestic Greylag Geese were on Linlithgow Loch. A Linnet and a Meadow Pipit were on a wire at Fisher's Brae while 50+ hirundines fed overhead. Eighty Pink-footed Geese flew south.
Dropping down into Kinneil woods,lots of birds were singing including Goldcrest, Robin and Woodpigeon. 
The tide was well out at Kinneil foreshore. Shelduck, Redshank and Curlew were dotted across the mud and a group of birds in front of Bo'ness railway yard included forty Bar-tailed Godwits, ten Black-tailed Godwits and three Teal. Three Chiffchaffs were singing at various places around the point.
Back at Linlithgow Loch, two Cormorants were on their usual island.
