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.

Wednesday, September 03, 2014

Today's visits required a car trip over to the eastern part of Bihor County. The large areas of standing water in this region probably accounted for the increased numbers of gulls and the single Lapwing seen by the roadside. Some of the villages held prominent White Stork's nests (now deserted for the winter). Other birds included Rook and Magpie.

A lunch stop in Alesd found very good numbers of House Martins and House Sparrows around the apartment blocks. 
After work, a visit to the thermal baths at the President Aqua Park produced a family group of Pied Wagtails on the roof of an out-building and a Jay flying over one of the outdoor pools.
Later in the evening, a visit to Baile Felix resort found the Indian Lotuses in Nenuphar Lake slightly past their best but still wonderful to see. A woodpecker calling from the trees above did not sound quite right for Great-spotted. A Jay showed itself briefly as it dived into the canopy nearby.
