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.

An early start by Linlithgow Loch found three pairs of Great-crested Grebes displaying in the west bay. Three Goldeneye flew in and a Greenfinch sang nearby. At Bo'mains Meadow, a Jay screeched from the windbreak between two fields where around 30 Redwings and at least one Fieldfare were commuting between the treetops and the stubble below*.
Birds along Bo-ness foreshore included around 100 Black-tailed Godwits (some moulting into their brick-red breeding plumage, around the same number of Dunlin and Redshank, plus smaller numbers of Bar-tailed Godwits, Oystercatchers and Curlews. Shelduck and Teal added to the colourful scene on an otherwise grey day.
